NSWG webinar: Autonomy: A Systems Engineering Perspective

Fri, 2016/07/15

Presenter: David Watson, Member, Principal Professional Staff, Johns Hopkins University, Applied Physics Laboratory

The word “autonomy” is appearing in the popular press with increasing frequency, associated either with airborne drone systems, self-driving cars, or other more exotic applications.  Despite the popularity of the term, however, it is not well defined from a systems engineering perspective, representing instead a collection of technologies including sensors, actuators, power management, adaptive control, signal processing, and pattern classification that enable systems to operate free of human supervision in various domains.  This talk will not focus on these individual technologies, but on some common system-level architecture themes that have evolved from engineering R&D over past several years, highlighting similarities with natural systems where appropriate, and suggesting directions for future work in this area.
