A Robot Copilot Just Flew & Landed a Boeing 737-800...


Good morning from the cockpit, this is your robot speaking.

A robot can fly an airliner.

ALIAS robot sits in the copilot's seat and uses cameras to monitor all the dials and gauges and switches in a cockpit, feeding that information to a processor. The system has a robotic arm to move the throttle and actuators to control the rudder and control column.

This time, ALIAS went to a Boeing 737-800NG simulator at the U.S. Department of Transportation's John A. Volpe National Transportation Systems Center in Cambridge, MA. The machine not only flew the plane during the sim but also used the 737's automated landed system to set it down safely, showing it could do so if it ever needed to say, if the human pilot were incapacitated.
