EPIC Online Quantum Technology Meeting on Moving to Next-Generation Transport and eMobility

26 March 2021

By 2025 we’re expecting around 8 million autonomous or semi-autonomous vehicles on our roads. But before merging onto roadways, self-driving cars and trucks will first have to progress through 6 levels of driver assistance technology advancements. To function, transport and e-Mobility systems are totally dependent on the global navigation satellite system (GNSS) which synchronises both gravimeter and LiDAR referential measurements. Our meeting will allow end-users to challenge key quantum technology players to create real-world business opportunities. What are the short-term needs for quantum-enhanced LiDAR systems and industrial quantum gravimeter?


Spirit of the meetings

During these online technology meetings, we are looking for the challenges the industry is facing and bringing together the entire supply chain to address these challenges. Bringing together end-users with component suppliers and system integrators that will answer the EPIC question “What can you do for them and what can they do for you” creates the perfect foundation to establish new business relationships and find ways for new collaborations and partnerships.
