System to maintain vehicle trajectory in lieu of direct operator command

Autopilot (Under CC License)

An autopilot is a system used to control the trajectory of an aircraft, marine craft or spacecraft without constant 'hands-on' control by a human operator being required. Autopilots do not replace human operators, but instead they assist them in controlling the vehicle. This allows them to focus on broader aspects of operations such as monitoring the trajectory, weather and systems.
