In July of this year, we wrote about a Quantum Computing Challenge issued by BMW and AWS. The purpose was to develop quantum algorithms for four specific industrial problems and to test them on real quantum computing technologies. About 70 companies submitted entries and these are the winners:

1. Sensor positions for automated driving functions: Accenture
2. Simulation of material deformations: Qu&Co
3. Configuration optimisation of pre-series vehicles: 1QBit and NTT
4. Automated quality analyses: QC Ware

BMW will continue to work with these winners as a customer so that the winners can continue development of these pilot projects. For more details, you can view a press release announcing these winners on the BMW website here and another press release that announcing the winners on the AWS website here.
