Planes can already take off, cruise and land with minimal human support. But, can they fly without human support? Yes, this can be true in 2018.
Boeing believes in reaching a point where everything can be done while using nothing. It wants to develop autonomous aircraft which would be capable of navigating themselves without any input from a human pilot. The world’s biggest plane maker is all set to test these self flying planes.
The artificial intelligence of these self flying planes would reduce the number of pilots for long haul flights, or in some situations allow fully autonomous flights. These, airplanes are all set for testing and soon enough would be seen taking off for the public.
