Sharing innovation to inspire action

A self-flying plane

post-image
Boeing plans to test self-flying technology in a cockpit simulator this year, before using it on a real plane next year.?It wants to develop autonomous aircraft, which would be capable of navigating themselves without any input from a human pilot. Planes can already take off, cruise and land with minimal human assistance, but Boeing wants to go a step further. It wants artificial intelligence to start making some of the decisions pilots are trusted to make. This will mean fewer pilots per plane are needed in future-instead of five pilots on a long haul flight down to three or two, taking two pilots down to one in a freight situation, or in some cases going from one to none. http://www.independent.co.uk/life-style/gadgets-and-tech/news/boeing-start-testing-self-flying-planes-autonomous-aircraft-no-pilot-artificial-intelligence-a7798901.html
