This robotic copilot flew and landed a Boeing 737. Sort of.

People can get tired, stressed, or drunk. Robots? Not so much. So although it might be a bit weird, the idea of having a robot piloting a plane makes a bit of sense. At least, that’s the idea behind Aurora Flight Sciences‘ Aircrew Labor In-Crew Automation System, or ALIAS for those who hate long, bulky, buzzword-heavy monikers.
