Advancing Autonomous Robot Development and Adoption Through Standards
Craig I. Schlenoff
Autonomy is the ability to perform tasks without help. In the case of autonomous robots, obstacles may arise internally like an electrical short or a broken part or externally such as encountering debris. These instances can cause mission interruption or failure. Greater autonomy requires adaptive mechanisms to overcome disturbances that affect a robot's ability to complete objectives. Programming for various ways of accomplishing the same tasks can prevent non-performance. IEEE Standards Association (IEEE SA) is at the forefront of standards development that can advance the reusable, scalable, more expedient, and less costly evolution of trustworthy autonomous robots.
