Honeywell Experiment: Autopilot to taxi plane

Honeywell is experimenting with an autopilot to taxi airplanes. As per the report published in the Wall Street Journal, the system should one day enable controllers to maneuver a plane on the tarmac through direct, computer-to-computer links, without the messiness of oral back-and-forth with a pilot. Such an autopilot would then close the circle of flight automation from takeoff to parking.
