An AI pilot may be able to navigate crowded airspace

A team of CMU researchers have developed an AI pilot that can navigate a crowded airspace. The team tested the AI on two flight simulators: one controlled by the AI, the other by a human—both operating in the same airspace. Credit: Carnegie Mellon University

Researchers at Carnegie Mellon University believe they have developed the first AI pilot that enables autonomous aircraft to navigate a crowded airspace.

The artificial intelligence can safely avoid collisions, predict the intent of other aircraft, track aircraft and coordinate with their actions, and communicate over the radio with pilots and air traffic controllers. The researchers …
