Japan is following the lead of other countries and drafting guidelines for a future filled with robots. According to a TimesOnline article a document, titled Draft Guidelines to Secure the Safe Performance of Next Generation Robots, was developed by the Ministry of Economy, Trade, and Industry.

This is in contrast to the UK Robot Rights Plan which is concerned with the ethical problems that may result from conscious robots being treated as servants without rights.
