Embraer and Universidade Federal do Espírito Santo (Ufes) collaboration in the areas of autonomous robotics and artificial intelligence has resulted in the first test of an autonomous aircraft in Brazil. A prototype was created to perform the taxiing operation on its own, moving along a previously established path without human interference. Using sensor and image navigation technology led the aircraft through the runway, taxi area and patio independently, without outside assistance. A pilot followed the cockpit operation in case of any interference. For the past six months, researchers from Embraer and Ufes have worked together on mathematical and computational models
