Ethical Robots


Development of software capable of making ethical judgement is important research; the advent of driver-less cars will likely make ethical agents a legal requirement.

In this project, you will work with 'Braitenberg's Vehicles', two-wheeled steerable robots with a small number of sensors. Following a literature review, you will design and code various behaviours of a collection of robots according to a number of ethical principles.

This project will use the Webot robot simulation platform.
