One of the main problems of normative system implementation is the semantic gap between the abstract norms described by natural language and the concrete norms described by operational language. This paper introduced an autonomous layered normative system framework which divided the normative system into three different layers. In this framework we realized automatic norm refinement by setting up semantic entailment relation and behavior responsibility relation, and automatic inter-level norm translation with action-operation mapping in the formal norm layers. With these mechanisms, the model effectively increased the system autonomy, with reduced normative system development cost and increased system reliability and dynamic adaptability.
