This article analyses the state of the art on wildfire remote sensing using UAVs, an application context that has now gained significant interest. It reviews a selection of relevant publications, and proposes a classification scheme to synthesize them from an autonomy perspective. Three metrics are introduced: situation awareness, decisional ability, and collaboration ability. A discussion about the current state and the outlook of UAV systems for wildfire observation concludes the paper.
