How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

- Studying interdisciplinary collaborations in technological development, specifically, the role of cultural values and situated knowledge in collective ethical decision-making.
This paper presents a design anthropological study with User Experience design departments from five large companies in Denmark, ranging from manufacturers of medical equipment through toys to control systems for industrial infrastructures We explore the challenges they face as products, services, and user research are increasingly connected. Our r...
Perspectives on Robots brings forth voices of different stakeholders engaged in or affected by new robot development to deliver a reality check on what robots are and what we can expect them to do. How will the robots developed today influence the nurses, teachers, physiotherapists, car mechanics, and cleaning staff of the future? And how are these...
Robots are emerging technologies with the potential to disrupt and transform existing ecologies. In an ethnographic study of an industrial automation project, it was shown that robots are produced in socio-material assemblages where particular values (flexibility, productivity, e.g.) shape the form, functions, and applications of the technological...
This paper belongs to the area of roboethics and responsible robotics. It discusses the conceptual and practical separation of humans and robots in designing and implementing robots into real-world environments. We argue here that humans are often seen as a component that is only optional in design thinking, and in some cases even an obstacle to th...
This paper centers on a five-month ethnographic field study among engineers in a Danish collaborative industrial robotics project, to examine how the everyday work of engineers intersects with existing, formally-adopted engineering ethics approaches.Methods included a literature review of engineering ethics, participant observation in a technical r...
The purpose of this study is to shed some light on robotics engineers’ decision-making processes, to perhaps find room for ethical reflection within the design process, through an investigation of their sociomaterial assemblages and the activities occurring therein. The intention is to critically examine engineering ethics by analyzing actual robot...
This edited volume is the first publication to tackle the issue of researching human-technology relations from a methodological postphenomenological perspective. While the ‘traditional’ phenomenology of the 20th century, with figures like Husserl, Heidegger and Merleau-Ponty, provided valuable insights into the formal structures of essence, being a...
As robotic technologies rapidly enter our everyday lives, we are compelled to consider the ethical, legal, and societal (ELS) challenges that arise in connection to these changes. In this workshop, we will present a novel methodological approach to HRI that will: help to identify ELS issues through ethnographic research methods, encourage interdisc...
