Don’t Drone? Negotiating Ethics of RPAS in Emergency Response

Xaroula Kerasidou, Monika Büscher and Michael Liegl (Lancaster University)

 

 

Abstract

This paper explores discourses of automation as a key ethical concern in the development of Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems for disaster response. We discuss problems arising from ‘humanistic’ dichotomies that pit human against machine, military against civil uses and experts against laypersons. We explore how it may be possible to overcome human-technology dichotomies.
