Long-Term Effects of Secondary Sensing

David P. Miller

Abstract


To integrate robotics into society, it is first necessary to measure and analyze current societal responses to areas within robotics. This article is the second in a continuing series of reports on the societal effects of various aspects of robotics. In my previous article, I discussed the problems of sensor abuse and outlined a program of treatment. However, despite the wide dissemination of that article, there are still numerous empty beds at the Susan Calvin Clinic for the Prevention of Sensor Abuse. Sensor abuse continues unabated despite strong evidence that there is a better way. In this article, I explore the age-old question, Why does the robotics community look down on efficient sensing systems?
