Abstract
With the wide application of the autonomous ground vehicles (AGVs) in the military and civilian areas, the autonomy requirements such as autonomous self-awareness, self-planning and self-control are increasingly considered. The autonomy evaluation has been one of the key issues in the research of the AGVs. Firstly, the autonomous definition and significance of the AGVs were discussed. The milestone events in the development of the autonomy evaluation methods were reviewed. Then the autonomy evaluation methods for the AGVs were summarized from both the early methods based on ontology & phenomenology and the modern ones based on cognitive & computational methods, respectively. Finally, an outlook of the autonomy evaluation development for the AGVs was analyzed.
