What are the differences between autonomic system and autonomous system? The advancement of technology introduces various innovation including new inventions, techniques and practices. These innovations came with many new terms that may represent similar concepts, adaptation as well as a more advanced implementation of the existing model or invention. Autonomic system and autonomous system are among of those terms.
Autonomic system and autonomous system: The differences
Autonomic system refers to computing system that automatically manages itself (Sitaram D. and Manjunath G., 2012). Autonomous system, on the other hand, is defined as system that can deal with the non-programmed or non-present situation and has the ability of particular self-management and self-guidance (Chen et. al., 2021).
While both autonomic system and autonomous system are based on the concepts of self managing characteristics where systems learns from the environment and then take actions automatically with minimum humans intervention, autonomic system works beyond that. It has the ability to dynamically change its own algorithms without an external software update that enables it to quickly adapt to new environments in the field.
The applications of autonomic system focuses on resolving the complexity of computing systems through self-configuring, self-optimising, and self-protecting, also self-healing where it shows promising results in simplified IT management such as IT service management technologies (ITSM) and Web Services distributed management (WSDM) whereas autonomous system operates within predetermine scopes in which its application is discussed in various fields particularly Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) or drones, Unmanned Ground Vehicles such as self-driving car and robots in manufacturing lines.
All in all, autonomic system and autonomous system are two different terms. With the industry is evolving from Industry 4.0 to Industry 5.0, it is believable that the terms will cover broader definition. Nevertheless, both systems are similarly beneficial in offering full potentials in the industrial growth.
