Why Robots Will Always Need Us?

I was at the airport the other day looking at planes coming in and something surprised me. One plane came in with one of its propellers completely stopped. According to my minimal aviation knowledge, something went wrong and the engine simply stopped working or the crew decided it was safer to fly without this engine. As I was analyzing the situation, I suddenly remembered that 90% of commercial flights are done on autopilot. Since an autopilot is simply a bunch of algorithms, how does the plane’s computer analyze this problem? If one of the motors on a robot stops working, the robot receives error signals and stops its motion, which I guess is no different for a plane. But in the back of my mind, I was still wondering how ''robots'' analyze and treat unexpected situations.
