Unmanned vehicles have been the focus of active research on autonomous motion planning, both deliberative and reactive. However, they are fundamentally limited in their autonomy by an inability to independently reason about, prioritize, and change the goals they pursue. We describe two new projects in which we are incorporating goal autonomy on unmanned vehicle platforms. We will apply the Goal-Driven Autonomy (GDA) model to permit our vehicles to reason about their objectives and discuss how properties of the domains affect the application of GDA.
