Airbus SE is exploring the next level of cockpit automation, testing a system that would provide advanced assistance for everything from alerts on the ground to emergency diversions at cruising altitude, should a crew be incapacitated.

The technology, called DragonFly, is designed to let planes perform an automated landing even in difficult weather conditions or low visibility while communicating with air traffic control as well as the airline’s operations team.

Airbus is testing the system, which also provides taxi assistance, both on the ground and in the air on an A350. Its most advanced model has been equipped with cameras, sensors and computer vision algorithms, a company official said.
