At one time a few years ago, Manchester Airport was trialling a "follow the greens" scheme where taxiways were illuminated in succession and the pilot followed the green lights from runway to gate. I'm not sure what came of it though. Maybe too complicated and expensive.

I'm talking about where you have a guide wire installed in the ground and the vehicle follows that guide wire.

Seeing how this works very well with cars (I'm pretty sure all Mercedes-Benz vehicles have a radar system that keeps a certain distance between you, and the car in front of you), it should work well with planes.
