Long-term autonomy requires autonomous systems to adapt as their capabilities no longer perform as expected. To achieve this, a system must first be capable of detecting such changes. In this position paper, we describe a system architecture for BDI autonomous agents capable of adapting to changes in a dynamic environment and outline the required research. Specifically, we describe an agent-maintained self-model with accompanying theories of durative actions and learning new action descriptions in BDI systems.
