I realise that the differences between 'autopilot' and 'autonomous' are comparable to a car having 'cruise control' or 'self-driving' capabilities, but I feel the distinctions aren't made clear in the tag descriptions:
Questions tagged autopilot
Any software system that allows a UAV to fly fully autonomously.
Questions tagged autonomous
Something that guides or controls all or part of its own functions.
I feel that these tags, given their descriptions, are used more or less interchangeably and should either:
- Be modified to make them distinct from each other
- Be merged together as synonyms
What are your thoughts on this matter?
