Abstract:

The implementation and testing of autonomous systems is challenging due to the inherent design complexity, infiinite test spaces, and lack of autonomy specific measures. This research instantiates the Autonomous System Reference Architecture ASRA on a wide area search WAS scenario as a test bed to study the reusability of ASRA and evaluate the systems ability to achieve efficient WAS and make decisions.
