Robots are increasingly used to accompany and replace humans, for instance in healthcare. Drones have recently made their debut on the battlefield, but research on ethical issues surrounding these robots has only just taken off. But can a robot meaningfully replace a human caregiver, or become a faithful companion? What kind of ethical considerations are involved in the use of drones? Does our reliance on robots compromise our values? 3TU.Ethics researches work with engineers to study how values are manifested during the design process and the use of robots and information technologies.
