I wouldn't recommend going for AutoIT as it will require the browser constantly being in focus therefore you will not be able to do anything else while your test is running. Moreover when you will be running your tests using Selenium Grid in parallel you will face issues. 

Therefore you can just locate the relevant <input type="file"> element and invoke sendKeys( ) function providing the full path to the file you're trying to upload. 

Relevant code:
