This course first describes the emergence of the vision that robots will be broadly deployed in our society. Then we identify some key technical characteristics of robotics. What kind of machines are robots actually? What kinds of technologies are we discussing when we talk about robots? Subsequently, we look at some key social characteristics of robots, and we will discuss the ethical questions in the field of innovation and about social acceptance about robotics on the basis of robo-ethics.
