26th IEEE International Conference on Intelligent Transportation Systems – ITSC 2023
24 de septiembre - 28 de septiembre
Quantum Computing is considered as the next frontier in computing, and it is attracting a lot of attention from the current scientific community. These technologies introduce new mechanisms, based on quantum mechanics, to solve a wide variety of problems more efficiently: from those traditionally solved by means of machine learning and optimization, to simulation. By leveraging quantum phenomena, such as superposition and entanglement, the quantum information processing and the pure quantum or hybrid algorithms (both classical and quantum procedures interplaying) are expected to achieve a speed and/or precision advantage in modelling systems and in solving complex optimization problems. As a result of the growing interest in this field, quantum computing has already been successfully applied to a plenty of use cases, being transportation one of the most intensively studied ones. Probably, being routing problems the main representative.
Last but not least, quantum technologies are shaking up the design, control and monitoring by new quantum sensors vastly improving the accuracy of the measurement. By collecting atom level data, the advanced versions of day-to-day technologies will incorporate more reliable geolocation and less vulnerable guidance systems which will be cornerstone for autonomous navigation.
The Quantum-ITS special session, to be held during IEEE ITSC 2023, aims at fostering discussions around the latest findings and research achievements, as well as the exchange of novel ideas in the application of quantum technologies to transportation, logistics and vehicle routing problems.
