The Taxibot is a semi-robotic towbarless aircraft movement device developed by the Israel Aerospace Industries. The Taxibot can tow an aircraft from the terminal gate to the take-off point (taxi-out phase) and return it to the gate after landing (taxi-in phase). The TaxiBot is the only certified and operational alternative taxiing system currently in the market, it  eliminates the use of airplane engines during taxi-in and until immediately prior to take-off during taxi-out, significantly reducing aircraft fuel usage and the risk of foreign object damage. The TaxiBot is controlled by the pilot from the cockpit using the regular pilot controls and has an 800-hp hybrid-electric engine.
