This paper reviews aspects of unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) autonomy as suggested by the Autonomous Control Logic chart of the U.S. DoD UAV autonomy roadmap; levels of vehicle autonomy addressed through intelligent control practices and a hierarchical/intelligent control architecture are presented for UAVs. Basic modules of the control hierarchy and their enabling technologies are reviewed; of special interest, from an intelligent control perspective, are the middle and high echelons of the… CONTINUE READING
