D6.6 A tentative proposal for an ethical framework

As required by Task T6.8, this deliverable evaluates the ethical framework proposed in D6.2 (resulting from work in T6.4) in the light of the results of the work with potential users in T6.7 (reported in D6.4). It first discusses each of the six values in the light of the data and then turns to participants’ responses to the tensions suggested by the scenarios. It concludes that the value framework does not so much need revision as operationalization, and suggests some possible content for an agreement between care-robot users and those who introduce care-robots into older people’s homes.
