Robots are being used more and more in Germany's workplaces; some robots even work in close quarters with employees, i.e. without physical barriers to separate them. But what happens in case of an accident? Can a robot be "responsible" for an accident? Or must the employee bear full responsibility? Nicolas Woltmann from the Robotrecht Forschungsstelle at the University of Würzburg, provides answers to these and other questions about the current state of human-robot cooperation.

Nicolas Woltmann, an employee of the Forschungsstelle, asked himself these and several other questions in the May 2018 issue of the magazine Sicherheitsingenieur.
