  In some cases - e.g. the second Psyco Gundam unit seen at Kilimanjaro -
this is mostly due to a psycommu-based remote-control system. And, in
general, there's ample precedent for mobile suits doing things on
automatic pilot - e.g. the Zaku is programmed to use its hand as a
makeshift elevator to carry the pilot down to ground level. But yes,
there are some instances where the Psyco Gundam - and even the Bound Doc
- seem not only to operate on their own initiative, but even to influence
the mind of the pilot, which is pretty hardcore. :-)

  As a further point of comparison, the workings of the Zero System seem
almost identical to those of Blue Destiny's EXAM System. Really, there's
not much of a technological gulf between UC and AC mobile suits...
