Volkswagen IT experts use quantum computing for traffic flow optimization

About 21 million inhabitants, more than five million cars – rush-hour in a megacity like Beijing can be hellish. On some days, hold ups last longer than four hours. This is why many residents call their city “Shoudu” – the capital of traffic jams – because the measures taken so far by the traffic authorities have brought little relief.

The Volkswagen Group is the first manufacturer using a quantum computer to calculate traffic flows.
