This publication includes the court cases of the overseas convention on robotic Ethics, held in Lisbon on October 23 and 24, 2015. The convention supplied a multidisciplinary discussion board for discussing vital and evolving concerns referring to defense and ethics that experience arisen in a variety of contexts the place robot applied sciences are being utilized. The papers are meant to advertise the formula of extra specified security criteria and moral frameworks for the quickly altering box of robot functions. The convention used to be held at Pavilhão do Conhecimento/Ciência Viva in Lisbon and taken jointly prime researchers and representatives, selling a discussion that mixes varied views and reports to reach at workable ideas for moral difficulties within the context of robotics.

The convention themes integrated yet weren't constrained to rising moral, defense, felony and societal difficulties within the following domains:

• Service/Social Robots: Robots acting projects in human environments and related to shut human-robot interactions in daily families; robots for schooling and leisure; and robots hired in aged and different care applications

• cellular Robots: Self-driving autos, independent plane, trains, vehicles and drones

Capabilities. It is well worth to further explore this direction, as insight in the factors explaining perceived autonomy can provide large benefits to the design of robots and human-robot interaction.

However, the consequences of the land mine’s actions are much bigger than those of the toaster. Tasks with larger implications are generally performed by people with higher levels of responsibility and they require a larger range of competencies. We therefore expect that robots that perform tasks with larger implications are perceived as more autonomous. 6 Physical Appearance There is a lot of evidence showing that the physical appearance of a robot influences people’s perception and expectations of that robot.

Data were analyzed by descriptive statistics. 4 Results Definition of autonomy. In answer to the first question of the questionnaire, only seven of the eighteen participants provided a definition for the term autonomy. 1. Most of the definitions contain one of the words ‘work’, ‘perform’ or ‘performance’ and one of the words ‘independence’ or ‘independently’, which is in line with our definition of ‘acting independently’. One respondent –instead of providing a definition of the term autonomy—remarked that he believed that a human will always be required to be in control and guarantee safety.
