DENSO and Toyota Tsusho to Conduct a Test Applying a Quantum Computer to Analyze IoT Data with a Commercial Application
- Test will advance R&D on essential technology for vehicles and transportation systems in the connected age -

TOKYO, Dec 14, 2017 - (JCN Newswire) - DENSO Corporation and Toyota Tsusho Corporation today announced to conduct the world's first test using a quantum computer to process data from a traffic IoT platform. The companies will process vehicle location and travel data in real-time from about a130,000 commercial vehicles in Thailand, aiming to establish best practices for quantum computer applications in transportation.

This type of technology will be essential in the connected era, when vehicles and mobility systems need to process large amounts of data in real-time. DENSO will present the concept and overviews at the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES 2018) in Las Vegas, Nevada, United States from January 9 to 12, 2018.

The test will collect and analyze location information from about 130,000 taxis and trucks in Thailand through cloud-based quantum computer devices developed by Canada-based D-Wave Systems Inc. DENSO and Toyota Tsusho will also implement quantum computer-based data analysis and processing technologies from TSquare, a traffic information service application from Toyota Tsusho group company Toyota Tsusho Nexty Electronics (Thailand) Co., Ltd. DENSO will create an algorithm to process and analyze quantum computer-based data, and Toyota Tsusho will integrate the algorithm into a new application on TSquare's platform. Findings will help guide application development to make transportation more efficient, from traffic decongestion to route optimization for emergency vehicles.

Unlike conventional computers, quantum computers perform calculations to find an enormous number of combinations simultaneously, and can analyze certain data more than 100 million times faster than conventional computers. Algorithms like the one DENSO will develop will also be key to translate the calculations into decisions, making the future of mobility a reality.
