Airbus: first automatic take-off based on vision
(CercleFinance.com) - Airbus has successfully completed the first fully automatic take-off that is based on vision using an Airbus family test aircraft at the Toulouse-Blagnac airport.
The test crew made a total of 8 takeoffs over a period of four and a half hours. This automatic take-off was activated by image recognition technology that is directly fitted on the plane.
Automatic take-off is an important step in ATTOL (Autonomous Taxi, Take-off & Landing) for Airbus. Launched in June 2018, ATTOL is one of the tested technology demonstrators tested by Airbus to understand the impact of autonomy on aircraft, Airbus said.
