RoboLaw: EU roadmap for developing guidelines on regulating robotics

by

The investigation on the interplay between robotics and regulation moves from a request for a legal framework that can accompany the developments of robotics. The request is coming from the very actors that operate in this sector, at the experimental and at the industrial level, who  cannot properly appraise the risks and duties entwined in their work until a clear analysis of this  interplay has been made. The research has explored both the formal and the substantial aspects of  the binomial robotics and regulation. On the one hand, it has focused on the different legal tools that can be employed in order to regulate technology in general, and robotic technologies in particular; on the other hand, the contents of the extant relevant legislation have been examined, with the aim of verifying whether they can already provide a systematic legal framework or other forms of regulation are needed, notwithstanding the adaptability and flexibility of the available
rules.
