Research field Social science

Every technology affects humans. The individual takes advantage of their possibilities and can derive value from it, but must also live with their dangers. 

The change in the environment associated with unmanned systems is directly related to humans, which must adapt to the increasing presence of drones, autonomous vehicles and other unmanned systems. 

The central research focus of the area is therefore how the use of unmanned systems affects the psyche of individuals and whole groups. This results in concrete questions, for example, about how the perception and acceptance of the population in relation to these technologies can be thought and evaluated. Does the perception change with a higher implementation of technology? Can changes to society be expected in the medium and long term? 

The coordinator of the research field is Prof. Dr. Reimer Eggers.
