Robotics promises to free humanity from fatigue and contribute to a new era of progress, but it also opens up new ethical and social challenges that need to be addressed urgently. From service robots, which will disrupt the labor market, to unmanned cars, which will change the transport model, to end with military robots that will put at risk the very survival of humanity, how to design robots that respect the ethical principles of goodwill, not maleficence, respect for autonomy and justice, even in uncertain contexts? And how to regulate all this, from a legal point of view?
