Autonomous cars are going to become quite popular in the next few years. Robots can do more than just driving cars though. Take Aurora’s ALIAS System for instance: it is a robotic system that can perform various flight tasks. It has already managed to autonomously fly and land a simulated Boeing 737:

Demonstrated on a Boeing 737-800NG simulator at the U.S. Department of Transportation’s John A. Volpe National Transportation Systems Center in Cambridge, Massachusetts, ALIAS showcased its ability to utilize the existing 737 auto-landing system to autonomously land the aircraft safely in the event of pilot incapacitation.

The system relies on in-cockpit machine vision, robotic components, speech recognition, and a tablet-based user interface.
