Robots are becoming a part of our lives. Unmanned aerial vehicles are occupying our skies for both civilian and military purposes. Robots started to serve customers in stores.  Autonomous cars are being tested on streets. Robot toys are entertaining our children and they will become friends with our children. Robotic surgery is expanding. Companies are developing robots to become companions to elderly people. There are many other types of robotic applications. Currently, these applications are limited in number and scale. However, with the current fast pace of the robotic technology research, we can expect a wide-spread use in the near future. All these robotic applications will have significant impacts on our society. While this technology brings great benefits, it will also bring new challenges.  We will be subject to questions never asked before. Some of these challenges and questions will be about ethical issues surrounding robotics. Roboethics is an emerging discipline dealing with ethical issues related to robotics. To shape this emerging discipline and guide related studies, we first need to ask good research questions. In this study, the goal is to identify and discuss various roboethics research questions. Some of the questions discussed in this paper are essential questions and the search for answers to these research questions will lead to many other interesting and advanced research questions. This study serves as a starting point for researchers interested in working roboethics.

Robotlar artık yaşamımızın bir parçası olmaktalar. İnsansız hava araçları çok çeşitli sivil ve askeri amaçlar için gökyüzünü doldurmaktadırlar. Robotlar mağazalarda müşterilere hizmet vermeye başladılar. Otonom araçlar yollarda test sürüşündeler. Robot oyuncaklar çocuklarımızı eğlendirmekte ve onlara arkadaş olmaktalar. Robotik cerrahi uygulamaları yaygınlaşmakta ve çeşitli teknoloji firmaları yaşlılara yardımcı olacak robotlar geliştirmekteler. Bunların haricinde daha birçok değişik robotik uygulama üzerinde çalışılmaktadır. Bu ve diğer robotik uygulamalar henüz sayı ve kapsam olarak sınırlı olmasına rağmen, robotik teknolojilerin gelişme hızına bakarsak, yakın bir gelecekte robotların yaygın bir şekilde kullanacağını tahmin edebiliriz. Tüm bu robotik uygulamalar yaşamımızı ve toplumumuzu derinden etkileyecektir. Bu teknoloji birçok fayda sağlamakla birlikte yeni sorunlara ve problemlere yol açacaktır. Daha önce hiç aklımıza gelmeyen sorularla karşı karşıya kalacağız. Bu soruların bazıları robotlarla ilgili etik konularda olacaktır. Robot etiği veya diğer adıyla roboetik, robotik alanındaki etik konuların çalışıldığı yeni gelişen bir bilim alanıdır. Bu yeni gelişen bilim alanını şekillendirmek ve ilgili araştırmaları yönlendirmek için öncelikle iyi araştırma sorularının ortaya konması gerekir. Bu çalışmanın amacı roboetik alanındaki bazı temel önemli araştırma sorularını tespit etmek ve tartışmaktır. Bu temel araştırma sorularının cevaplarını bulmaya çalışmak bizlere daha ilginç ve ileri seviye araştırma sorularına yöneltecektir. Bu çalışma, roboetik alanında çalışmak isteyen araştırmacılara bir başlangıç noktası olmasıyla önemlidir.
