Tech Tent: Robot rules for any Tom, Dick or Harry
Mainly the rules refer to how robots need to serve humans but does one give them a glimpse of their own rights? The little farming robots do not come across many humans, other than the odd rambler, Ben Scott-Robinson, co-founder of the Small Robot Company, told us. If a robot is disconnected from the user, it will stop. A robot has the right to react if it believes an interactor is behaving maliciously. Mr Scott-Robinson told us this was not as revolutionary as it might sound: "It's much more mundane. It is the same as if someone maliciously interferes with your car then the alarm goes off. If someone picks up or kicks a robot when it is going about its daily work, then the robot should be able to collect information about who is doing it and tell its user."
