Abstract

Unmanned systems have become more and more widely used.  Yet, various practitioners have different perceptions and different expectations of the systems.  They also have different definitions for the term autonomy and different concepts about how it should be measured.  We have been developing a framework called Autonomy Levels for Unmanned Systems (ALFUS) that aims at providing a common reference for the communication and the evaluation of the autonomy capabilities of unmanned systems.  The framework is under development.  This paper is a work-in-progress report on some key areas.
