RoboHub staff help to design and host a RoboEthics Competition for RO-MAN 2021

Sunday, August 8, 2021

Prof. Brandon DeHart and Alex Werner worked alongside Prof. AJung Moon and her team at McGill's RAISE Lab and the Open Roboethics Institute (ORI) to design and host an international competition focused on ethical robots. The competition was held as part of the RO-MAN 2021 conference, whose organizing committee included five faculty and two staff from Waterloo Engineering.

The core purpose of this competition, and the associated workshop at RO-MAN 2021, was to investigate what it means for a personal robot to act ethically in a home environment by having teams of graduate students submit their approaches to controlling a robot in a virtual apartment.
