There’s no shortage of autonomous vehicle concepts out there, but what if you could transform your vehicle into a self-driving machine? That’s what the Lockheed Martin’s subsidiary Sikorsky Matrix Technology Autonomous System is built to accomplish, as we’re heading toward a future where machines are taking the wheel.

The Sikorsky Matrix Technology is built to reduce the workload of a pilot and it’s being tested on a helicopter called S.A.R.A. (Sikorsky Autonomy Research Aircraft). The system is built to deflate fears of Terminator‘s Skynet becoming a reality, as the computer takes control when the pilot isn’t maneuvering the vehicle, yet the system backs off when the pilot takes over again. This revolutionary system works with a tablet, where you can preset a mission or simply point to a spot on the map, choose your speed and attitude, and let the machine take care of the rest. The Sikorsky Matrix Technology will calculate the optimal route, working with inertial guidance systems, external sensors, and GPS to ensure a smooth flight. In about a year, the Sikorsky Matrix Technology will be featured in U.S. Army Black Hawk helicopters and may even be used for flying cars further down the line.
