Unmanned aircraft completes flight through UK public airspace

A Jetstream aircraft, dubbed the "Flying Test Bed", last month became the first plane to fly unmanned through UK shared airspace, according to a BBC report.The 16-seat plane has been developed to be flown pilotless. It includes a cockpit camera that functions as an "electronic eye", an infrared camera for emergency landings, an aircraft identification antenna and a central passenger cabin filled with powerful computers.The plane's "electronic eye" allows the plane to recognize cloud types and plot a course to avoid unfavorable weather.The airplane's 'sense and avoid' technology allows it to avoid unplanned mid-flight obstacles.It's infrared camera can be used to detect and avoid life to find safe landing areas.The project's director Lambert Dopping-Hepenstal expects to see pilotless airplanes operating in British airspace by the end of the decade.FOR MORE TOMONEWS US, GO TO: FOR MORE FUNNY TAIWANESE ANIMATIONS, GO TO: FOR MORE FUNNY TAIWANESE ANIMATIONS IN ENGLISH, GO TO: FOR MORE TOMONEWS JP, GO TO: FOR MORE APPLE DAILY ENGLISH, GO TO: CHECK OUT THE ODDBODS!
