Smart autonomy improves efficiency and convenience thanks to automated decision making

  • Products with smart autonomy have the capability of taking decisions and actions without direct input from users or external systems

  • They can adapt to changes in the environment and to user preferences to achieve better product performance, simplify operation and reduce human intervention

  • Smart autonomy always requires autonomous decision making in software and some sensing, but not necessarily connectivity

  • It’s a stepping stone towards levels of intelligence that go beyond decision making, like optimisation advice and performance prediction
