The integrated system consisting of sensory and computational infrastructure that automatically analyses sensor data and performs tasks autonomously, with no or minimal human supervision. Such infrastructure may be a single hardware unit (e.g., a drone) or an integrated system comprised of multiple components, for instance stationary Internet-of-Things nodes/sensors, cameras, mobile units, such as (semi-)autonomous aerial systems (drones) or autonomous cars, together with the supportive hardware infrastructure (network, ground control station).
