    Airbus completes autonomous taxi, take-off, and landing tests

    Airbus just completed its Autonomous Taxi, Take-Off, and Landing project that saw one of its jets perform normally pilot-flown maneuvers entirely on its own. The A350-1000 XWB acted as the testbed for the project in its role as Airbus' flagship, with onboard cameras assisting the new technology. The project's successful completion opens the door for fully autonomous flights as autopilot already handles most of the functions while airborne. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories.

    Probably safer and less complicated than autonomous cars and trucks.

      I think that I will prefer having a pilot, until a LOT more testing is done. Computers are great, but still have their occasional glitches.

            The Lockheed L-1011 could do auto-landing 45 years ago. Would stay within 10 feet of the centerline down to 80 knots. If the airports were properly equipped (none were) they would taxi to the gate.
