  • A Survey of Nonverbal Signaling Methods for Non-Humanoid Robots

    This monograph surveys and informs the design and usage of nonverbal signals for human-robot interaction. With robots increasingly being utilized for tasks that require them to not only operate in close proximity to humans but to interact with them as well, there has been great interest in the communication challenges associated with the varying degrees of interaction in these environments. The success of such interactions depends on robots¿¿¿ ability to convey information about their knowledge, intent, and actions to co-located humans. The monograph presents a comprehensive review of literature related to the generation and usage of nonverbal signals that facilitate legibility of non-humanoid robot state and behavior. To motivate the need for these signaling behaviors, it surveys literature in human communication and psychology and outlines target use cases of non-humanoid robots. Specifically, the focus is on works that provide insight into the cognitive processes that enable humans t recognize, interpret, and exploit nonverbal signals. From these use cases, information is identified that is potentially important for non-humanoid robots to signal and organize it into three categories of robot state. The monograph then presents a review of signal design techniques to illustrate how signals conveying this information can be generated and utilized. It concludes by discussing issues that must be considered during nonverbal signaling and open research areas, with a focus on informing the design and usage of generalizable nonverbal signaling behaviors for task- oriented non-humanoid robots.

  • 13 Intimacy, Bonding, and Sex Robots: Examining Empirical Results and Exploring Ethical Ramifications

    Many advances in communicative technology have served to represent and express human sexuality: the printing press, motion pictures, and, not the least, the Internet. Social robotics, however, while not yet a mainstream contributor, is particularly poised to represent, enact, and affect society's sexual mores and practices. Sex robots are already manufactured and marketed by several companies, with increasing variety and capability being at least promised if not delivered.1 And although virtual reality and other computer-based avenues for sexual use are also developing rapidly, sex robots--embodied, mobile, and (to a limited degree) expressive--elicit and trade upon dimensions of physicality, intimacy, reciprocity, and social space. Robots both reflect and refract notions of what human bodies are, how they interact, touch, desire, and accompany one another. The prospect of sex robots assuming a greater presence in our societies underscores the general ethical questions raised by social robots: How will people be able to live with such robots? How will people treat each other as a result? Will social robots replace human beings in ways they should not?

  • 2 On the Very Idea of Sex with Robots

    Invention in aid of sexual satisfaction is not new. Archeologists have found dildos dating back to the Upper Palaeolithic,1 and the history of pornography is in many ways a history of technological advances.2 Nonetheless, the prospect of sophisticated and humanlike robots designed specifically for our sexual gratification has attracted a great deal of recent media attention.3 Is this attention warranted--specifically, is the development of sex robots more significant for our sexual lives than the invention of dildos, cameras, vibrators, etc.? If our sexual relations with sex robots can be understood in just the same terms as our sexual relations with vibrators and RealDolls, it's unlikely that their impact on our experience and understanding of sex and sexuality will be deep. But if sex robots are something genuinely new and different, and in particular if they become possible sex partners, rather than sex toys, questions about how to relate to them and what to think about them will abound.

  • 4 Should We Campaign Against Sex Robots?

    September 2015 saw the launch of the Campaign Against Sex Robots (CASR).1 Spearheaded by Kathleen Richardson of Leicester De Montfort University and Erik Brilling of the University of Skovde, the CASR models itself on the longer-standing Campaign to Stop Killer Robots, which was itself organized to preemptively ban fully autonomous weapons. CASR opposes the development of sex robots (for a sense of what we mean by this term, see the opening chapter in this volume by Danaher) on the grounds that they are "potentially harmful and will contribute to inequalities in society."2 The campaign's founders believe that "an organized approach against the development of sex robots is necessary."3

  • 5 Sex Robots and the Rights of the Disabled

    In this chapter, I propose to argue that the right to sexual satisfaction of severely physically and mentally disabled people, and elderly people who suffer from neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's disease, can be potentially fulfilled by deploying sex robots. This would enable us to satisfy the sexual needs of many people who cannot provide for their own sexual satisfaction without at the same time violating anybody's right to sexual self-determination. I do not offer a full-blown moral justification of deploying sex robots in such cases, as not all morally relevant concerns can be addressed here; rather, I put forward a plausible way of fulfilling acute sexual needs without violating anybody's sexual rights.

  • 8 Legal and Moral Implications of Child Sex Robots

    At a robotics conference in July 2014, Ronald Arkin, Mobile Robot Lab director at the Georgia Institute of Technology, claimed that robots designed to look and act like children could be used to treat pedophiles the way methadone is used to treat drug addicts. This claim gave rise to a heated debate. While some people think that the development of child sex robots in order to treat pedophiles would be a worthwhile project, others say this is a repugnant idea.1 The aforementioned debate is similar to the debate that raged when Dutch psychologists suggested that pedophiles should be offered entirely computer-generated child pornography for treatment purposes.2

  • 6 Religious Perspectives on Sex with Robots

    As we look toward a future in which human interaction with robots will be ever more diverse and more common, one in which those interactions might include both sex and some sort of emotional relationship, do our religious traditions, traditions laid down long before robots were ever dreamt of, offer any guidance? There is no one religious sexual ethic, neither across traditions nor within them. From the explicitly libidinous carvings of Hindu temples to the celibacy of the Desert Fathers, religious thought on sexuality has run the gamut; religions have both celebrated and sought to severely limit human sexual expression. Thus, there will be no single religious approach to the question of whether sex with a robot is either permissible or desirable.

  • 12 From Sex Robots to Love Robots: Is Mutual Love with a Robot Possible?

    In human romantic relationships, sex and love often go together. But what if one party is not a human, but a sex doll or a sex robot? In the 2002 BBC documentary Guys and Dolls, one of the characters viewers meet is a human male living in southeastern Michigan, who calls himself Davecat. Another character is a synthetic doll, "Sidore." Davecat considers Sidore not only his sexual partner, but also his wife. They love each other, he says. When interviewed by The Atlantic in 2013, Davecat was still living with Sidore. He was contemplating how best to celebrate the upcoming fifteenth anniversary of his love and marriage to Sidore.1

  • Design of Dynamic Legged Robots

    Inspired by the remarkable locomotion capabilities illustrated by animals across land, sea and air, robotics engineers have strived for decades to achieve similar dynamic locomotion capabilities in legged machines. Learning from animals¿¿¿ compliant structures and ways of utilizing them, engineers have developed numerous novel mechanisms that allow for more dynamic, more efficient legged systems. These newly emerging robotic systems possess distinguishing mechanical characteristics in contrast to manufacturing robots in factories and pave the way for a new era of mobile robots to serve our society. Realizing the full capabilities of these new legged robots is a multi-factorial research problem, requiring coordinated advances in design, control, perception, state estimation, navigation and other areas. Design of Dynamic Legged Robots focuses on the mechanical design of legged robots. It introduces the topic by looking at the history of legged robots, taking us up to the dynamic legged achines that are today pushing the boundaries of speed and performance through advances in materials, design, and control. It goes on to discuss some of the main challenges to actuator design in legged robots and discusses a recently developed technology called proprioceptive actuators in order to meet the needs of today¿¿¿s legged machines. It proceeds to discuss philosophical perspectives on designing for energetic efficiency, a critical aspect of legged robot design. The penultimate chapter discusses trends in leg design and presents a case study using principles from observations in biology to design a leg for the MIT Cheetah robot, and concludes with a summary of future directions and applications.
