"Quantum computation would provide a significant speed increase to Cybernet's machine vision algorithms. Much of the core technology behind Cybernet's computer vision system is based on N-dimensional geometric edge matching search. We believe thatquantum computational model for such a system would at least achieve a square root speed increase (via Grover's algorithm) over the classical computation methods we are currently using. We propose to apply quantum computational methods to our machinevision algorithms while at the same time, provide a set of tools for generic Quantum N-dimensional searching that may be beneficial for other applications. We will use, and if necessary create our own, quantum computer simulation models to determine thefeasibility and efficiency of such quantum algorithms. The proposed technology could be used to improve the capabilities of industrial robots. The ability to accurately determine position and location of an object would allow the robot to properly obtainany item regardless of initial pose. It might also allow for fast recognition and categorization of objects. The technology can also be used for optically tracking vehicles and/or docking ports for military, commercial, and space applications."
