The term autonomic, like the term autonomous, comes from robotics and human related sciences.


  • autonomic: (a) acting or occurring involuntarily (reflexes) �(b) relating to, affecting, or controlled by the autonomic nervous system or its effects or activity [Webster 96].


Relation to Autonomous management

Compared to autonomous networks, autonomic networks are less intelligent and require a management interface.

  • autonomous: (a) having the right of power of self-government; �(b) responding, reacting, or developing independently of the whole [Webster 96].
