Digital pioneering work: Volkswagen uses quantum computers
  • Cooperation with leading quantum computing company D-Wave Systems
  • World premiere at CeBIT: research project for traffic flow optimization

The Volkswagen Group is the world's first automaker to use quantum computers, further expanding its digital competence for the future. In this context, Volkswagen Group IT is cooperating successfully with leading quantum computing company D-Wave Systems on a research project for traffic flow optimization. In the course of this project, IT experts from the Volkswagen labs in San Francisco and Munich have been the first to develop a smart mobility program on the D-Wave quantum computer. Quantum computers can solve highly complex problems many times faster than conventional supercomputers. To date, quantum computing technology has been used primarily by scientific institutes, government agencies, and in the aerospace sector.
