FUJITSU APPLY QUANTUM-

INSPIRED SOLUTIONS TO

MOBILITY ISSUES

This year, Fujitsu is a key exhibitor at Shift Automotive.

Hugo Lerias, CTO Automotive, Fujitsu, spoke to IFA

International about his keynote at the conference

and how the company is working in the field of future

mobility.

The keynote gave insights on

how companies can already

solve combinatorial optimisation

problems under real-time

conditions using quantuminspired

technologies.

Fujitsu has a long-standing

history working in various fields

of the automotive industry,

being a Tier 1 supplier of

electronic components and IT

services for a rich ecosystem of

automotive suppliers. For megacities

like Tokyo and its central

taxi company, Fujitsu provides

telematics and services that

optimise the dispatch of vehicles

and improve the utilisation of

mobility offering. Furthermore,

Fujitsu is leveraging new

technologies like the quantumcomputing-inspired

Digital

Annealing Unit for such things as

passenger car matching. We offer

biometric authentication services

and solutions like PalmSecure

for new mobility platforms that

help to identify the driver and

ultimately improve the customer

journey.

In 20 years, what will have

changed in the way we move

around?

In the coming decades,

the landscape will change

dramatically. This will be driven

by emerging consumer trends

and innovative mobility services.

Ecosystems which easily allow

multi-modal travelling will evolve,

transforming how people move

and where they live and work.

How important is Shift

Automotive as a platform to

foster thought leadership in this

field, and why?

This event shows the future of

mobility and provides an excellent

platform for interaction with

decision-makers and industry

thought leaders. Therefore, at

Shift Automotive, we present our

connected services offering to

support next-generation mobility

services

CONNECTING CITIES, PEOPLE

AND TRANSPORT PROVIDERS

Christof Schminke,

managing director of Trafi

in Germany, addressed

the Shift Automotive

summit on the topic of

a “one-stop shop” for

mobility, allowing users

to make better informed

decisions. We asked

him to summarise his

presentation for IFA

International readers.

My presentation explored the idea

that holistic multi-modal mobility

services organised by a city,

together with private partners,

is the first step in realising

smarter urban mobility - instead

of working with one individual

transport operator. I argued that

this holistic approach enables

democratised access for transport

providers and helps cities to

understand user preferences and

provide infrastructural and legal

adaptations. For the citizens, it

removes the hurdles of mobility

- a one-stop shop for mobility

allowing users to make better

decisions.

How are mobility solutions

evolving over time?

The cities are the beating heart

of the mobility ecosystem. Yet,

the offer met by citizens is often

scattered and hard to digest. New

mobility operators are constantly

flooding the streets of urbanised

areas, but today it’s hard to get

an overarching view of what

the network system looks like,

holistically and comprehensively.

To make it easier for people

to utilise the entire network

of transport, and for cities to

regain control of their mobility

systems, we have created a digital

infrastructure for operating and

analysing mobility. The Trafi

technology suite makes it possible

to connect all types of mobility,

from multi-modal options to the

public transport network, into

one fast and frictionless solution.

Instead of adding obstacles to

travelling we remove the hustle

and create an experience that is

seamless, convenient and better

suited for the digital consumer on

the go
