Autopilot: how self-driving cars can learn from the plans

We are in the beautiful and historic London headquarters of the Royal Aeronautical Society.

The building, just off Hyde Park Corner, exudes history, painted boards that carry the names of the society’s past presidents, many of whom were at the forefront of aeronautical engineering and development.

I am here to talk about self-driving car with a gentleman by the name of Tony Henley, who has spent his entire career in the world of avionics, including 35 years at BAE Systems, specialising in the navigation and navigation displays. He has a degree in electronics and a master’s degree in instrumentation. Today he is a consultant to various bodies, including government, on topics that include drones.
