TAXIBOT - TaxiBot system, a semi-robotic towbarless tractor that tows an aircraft from the airport gate to the take-off point (taxi-out phase) and returns it to the gate after landing (taxi-in phase).

Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) and Lufthansa have successfully tested the TaxiBot, a robot designed to improve airports by cutting fuel use, air pollution, and noise. The TaxiBot allows planes to taxi on the runway with the engines off, while the pilot maintains control of the plane.
