Roboethics and Telerobotic Weapons Systems
A technology is used ethically when it is intelligently controlled to further a moral good. So we can easily extrapolate that the ethical use of telerobotic weapons technology occurs only when that technology is intelligently controlled and advances a moral action. This paper deals with the first half of the conjunction; can telerobotic weapons systems be intelligently controlled? At the present time it is doubtful that these conditions are being met, I suggest some ways in which this situation could be improved.
