Quantum Technology for Transport
Quantum technologies and their promise of revolutionising technologies and capabilities have become a popular topic, but many do not understand what they can provide, and think they are too far into the future to be an asset now.
The fact is quantum technologies are real, exciting capabilities are available now, and the UK has a privileged position as a leader in this area.
KTN would like to invite you to attend our exciting workshop on the 8th of February at the Williams Formula 1 centre, Grove, where current quantum capabilities and technologies will be outlined and explained.
If you are part of the Intelligent Transport and Mobility world come along to find out about the new developments in quantum technology that can provide sought after solutions.
Potential benefits include:
- positioning capabilities
- vehicle situational awareness
- increased accuracy of communication systems
- imaging through turbid media
- imaging around corners
- detecting imminent landslips
You participation in this workshop could help shape the direction of research and focus, as well as finding new avenues of applying this technology in areas that can raise the global competitiveness of the United Kingdom and maintain its status as a leader.

In order to reduce the CO2 impact of this event, we will be organising transfers from Didcot train station to the venue and back. The cost will be £10 for a return trip and this can be booked by selecting the corresponding ticket type. During registration you will have the option to select your transfer times.
The initiative is part of the UK National Quantum Technology Programme to commercialise quantum technology.
Please contact Bob Cockshott for more information.
