P7007 - Ontological Standard for Ethically Driven Robotics and Automation Systems

The standard establishes a set of definitions and their relationships that will enable the development of Robotics and Automation Systems in accordance with worldwide Ethics and Moral theories, with a particular emphasis on aligning the ethics and engineering communities to understand how to pragmatically design and implement these systems in unison. These definitions allow for a precise communication among global experts of different domains that includes Robotics, Automation and Ethics. The use of ontologies for representing knowledge in any domain has several benefits that include a) formal definition of concepts of a particular domain in a language-independent representation, i.e., they are not dependent of a specific programming language, however, they are formally described to be implemented in a target language; b) tools for analyzing concepts and their relationships in searching of inconsistency, incompleteness and redundancy; c) language for being used in the communication process among Robots from different manufacturers; etc.The standard establishes a set of ontologies with different abstraction levels that contain concepts, definitions and axioms which are necessary to establish ethically driven methodologies for the design of Robots and Automation Systems.
