A fourth generation of quarks could be very helpful in solving some problems within the Standard Model such as the origin of baryogenesis as well as explaining current tensions within the CKM paradigm. If such quarks exist, they should be copiously produced at the LHC. In this talk I will discuss the detection of these quarks through their distinctive kinematic signature.
