Car manufacturer BMW and quantum computing technology developer Pasqal have entered a new phase of collaboration to analyze the applicability of quantum computational algorithms to metal forming applications modeling. The automotive industry is one of the most demanding industrial environments, and quantum computing could solve some of the key design and manufacturing issues. According to a report by McKinsey, automotive will be one of the primary value pools for quantum computing, with a high impact noticeable by about 2025. The consulting firm also expects a significant economic impact of related technologies for the automotive industry, estimated at $2 billion to $3 billion, by 2030. Volkswagen Group led the way with the launch of a dedicated quantum computing research team back in 2016.
