Based on a hybrid system consisting of a quantum dot coupled with a double-sided micropillar cavity, we investigate the implementation of an error-detected photonic quantum routing controlled by the other photon. The computational errors from unexpected experimental imperfections are heralded by single photon detections, resulting in a unit fidelity for the present scheme, so that this scheme is intrinsically robust. We discuss the performance of the scheme with currently achievable experimental parameters. Our results show that the present scheme is efficient. Furthermore, our scheme could provide a promising building block for quantum networks and distributed quantum information processing in the future.
