ABSTRACT
An introduction to the area of intelligent autonomous hierarchical
control is given. Autonomous control systemsarc designed to perform well
under significant uncertainties in the system and environment for extended
pcriods of time, and they must be able to compensate for system failures
without extemal intervention. Intelligent autonomouscontrol systems use
techniques from the field of ArtificialIntelligenceto achieve this autonomy.
Such control systems evolve from conventional control systems by adding
intelligent components, and their development requires interdisciplinary
rcscarch. The fundamental issues in autonomous control system modelling
and analysis are discussed, with emphasis on mathematical modelling.
