Military Robotics 2014 aims to explore the fascinating world of robotics and the increasing demand in militaries around the world. The conference will draw upon valuable case studies of current systems utilised in military operations, new technology being used, the operational challenges that are faced and how to overcome them.
This Conference will go above and beyond in mapping the developments of unmanned and autonomous ground and marine vehicles as well as identify key capability requirements to be presented by military experts and leading service providers/ vendors.
Due to the rapid development of robotic systems and the growing demand for their integration into many aspects of society, we have seen a rise in debates and discussion facilitated around the ethical and legal implications. The conference will also seek to encourage discussion on the issues of building a fleet of armed robots and utilizing them for fighting an 'Unmanned War' as well as the ethical issues of artificial intelligence.
