A transportable, standalone quantum navigation system designed for large vehicles such as ships and trains will be among the many exhibits hosted by researchers at the UK Quantum Technology Hub Sensors and Timing at the forthcoming 2021 National Quantum Technologies Showcase.
This annual event, which is hosted by KTN and Innovate UK, has become the most important quantum industry event in the UK since its launch in 2014. Over 600 visitors from academic and industry audiences will attend the Showcase, which aims to put forward the latest demonstrator prototypes, and will this year resume its physical format after 2020’s virtual event. Over 80 exhibits have been planned, including those from blue-chip companies such as Toshiba and Riverlane.
The quantum inertial navigation system, which has been developed by Hub researchers at Imperial College London, will enable allow navigation without reliance on satellite signals, which are prone to interference and instability.
The below research will also be featured at exhibits led by Hub researchers:
Developing smaller, faster and lightweight quantum sensor technology: led by researchers at the Universities of Glasgow, Strathclyde and SouthamptonQuantum sensors for sensing underground: led by researchers at the Universities of Glasgow and BirminghamSensing the brain: led by University of Nottingham researchersEnhancing battery performance for electric vehicles: led by University of Sussex researchersDeveloping more accurate and timing for a resilient infrastructure: led by NPL
The QT Hub Sensors and Timing is part of the UK National Quantum Technologies Programme (UKNQTP) is a UK Government investment in excess of £1b over 10 years, aimed at accelerating the translation of quantum technologies into the marketplace, boosting UK business and making a real difference to our everyday lives.
