i want to know if he really followed proper safety rules.

"Thinking he had cut off the power supply, the man approached the robot with no sense of trepidation. "

thinking he did and doing it are two different things.

theres not really enough info on that site to really tell what happened.

honestly, with my view of humanity, the guy probably just walked into the way of the robot as it was functioning

Hmmm this sounds much more like human error.. Than a robot comming to life and attacking him out of the reasons most life forms attack..
Being threatened, being emotionally distressed, you name it.. This machine didn't have any of these reasons.. Its a machine!! LOL


Thinking he had cut off the power supply, the man approached the robot with no sense of trepidation.


Okay so If I'm on the job, and lets say I am working with a power line.. And I "think" I turn off the power on the circuit breaker. And I go and grab the main line and get zapped with 220 volts! Who's fault would that be?

I'm shocked he won the lawsuit really.. It was by human error that he walked in front of a malfunctioning machine with the power still on!!!

It would be the fault of the power line that came to life and zapped your butt to show you that it is the boss.

Isn't it a great place we live in where someone who narrowly misses being nominated for a darwisim award is rewarded.

I think I'm going to go for a drive, turn on my cruise control and take a nap. If I crash I'm going to sue GM.

Well GOSH DARN IT!!!! There goes my dream of having a robot girlfriend. She would probably just attack me too.

Sounds similar to this "attack"



In 1981, Japanese factory worker Kenji Urada was killed by a robot in a manufacturing plant. Urada had climbed into the robot's operating zone to fix something when he accidentally switched the robot back on. The hydraulic robot failed to sense Urada and crushed him as it carried on with its tasks.

IMO, human error for the most part, with a little bit of bad luck too.
When something like the Foster-Miller TALON attacks or kills somebody, then i'll be worried


My first post, by the way!

I worked for a supplier to the auto industry and we had robots in every department. The robots had a cage around them and you had to lock out and tag out the robot before you could enter the cage. Failure to do so, first offense, got you escorted off the companies property.

Several years ago a maintenance man went into a robot cage to work on a machine and failed to properly neutralize the hydraulics of the robot. while working on the machine the robot reached into the machine and pinned him in it, suffocating him to death.

It wasn't the robots fault, it was his for failing to follow safety procedures.

You have to respect any and all heavy equipment, be it robot or bulldozer.

So he walked into a motion sensored area and was "attacked"? Unless the robot did one of two things, it is completely his fault and he falsely remembered shutting it off and simply tripped its motion sensor:

1. It verbally taunted him before carrying out the attack.

or

2. It went about attacking him in motions that are not within its programmed response to a tripped motion sensor. Like shaking him like a ragdoll etc.

The 3 Laws of Robotics:

1. A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.
2. A robot must obey any orders given to it by human beings, except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.
3. A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law.



Sorry, I couldn't resist.
