Yes planes have auto land also. Many airports don't have systems certified for that though. A hard landing might actually have been automated. The smoothest landings you've experienced were performed by a person. Nearly all large planes can fly the approach until the plane is set up to land at any airport, leaving the final touchdown to a person because it is so complex that is still cost effective.

The Windy City reached a grim milestone over the long Fourth of July weekend as the city's homicide rate surpassed 200.
The city logged its 200th homicide of the year on Saturday when a 24-year-old man was shot to death in the 1000 block of West Maxwell Street on the Near West Side, according to RedEye Chicago.
On Saturday alone, at least seven people were injured in a single drive-by shooting that left a 48-year-old man dead. The Sun-Times reports police believe the 6 p.m. shooting in Lawndale was gang-related and connected to an earlier attack on July 4.
