Autonomous system earns wings on multiple aircraft

A new autonomous system backed by DARPA (Defence Advanced Research Projects Agency) has demonstrated its flight capabilities on a number of aircraft, including a Cessna Caravan and a Diamond DA-42. The Aircrew Labour In-Cockpit Automation System (ALIAS) uses a combination of machine vision, robotic controls, a tablet-based user interface, and speech recognition to assist in the cockpit. It also includes a “knowledge acquisition” process that allows the system to be adapted to...theengineer.co.uk - 19th Oct
