ATTOL and Wayfinder are two projects in the airbus autonomy portfolio  

Is autonomy the future of aerial mobility?

Autonomous technologies are showing real promise in the development of more autonomous aircraft

Team Condor Aviation e-racer model for Air Race E on static display – Dubai Airshow 2019
This first example of an electric race plane will compete in Air Race E, the world’s first all-electric airplane race of which Airbus is Official Founding Partner. The 2019 Dubai Air Show marks the e-racer’s first public appearance  

This is the first e-racer set to compete in Air Race E

A winning aircraft from air racing competitions of the 1990s has been transformed into an e-racer

This flight demonstrator project aims to prove the technical, operational and economic viability of wake-energy retrieval for commercial aircraft. This collaborative activity could make a significant impact on aircraft’s environmental performance, including potential fuel savings of 5-10% per trip.  

Airlines are looking to reduce fuel consumption. Wake-energy retrieval could help
