The future of autonomous aircraft
Imagine a world of aerial delivery drones bringing goods right to your door or sixth-generation fighter aircraft patrolling battle zones – all without the intervention or even supervision of a human pilot. We recently caught up with Professor Ella Atkins, the director of U-M’s Autonomous Aerospace Systems (A2SYS) Lab, and asked her about autonomous flight systems and its implications.
