Increasingly complex and autonomous systems require machine ethics to maximize the benefits and minimize the risks to society arising from the new technology. It is challenging to decide which type of ethical theory to employ and how to implement it effectively. This survey provides a threefold contribution. Firstly, it introduces a taxonomy to analyze the field of machine ethics from an ethical, implementational, and technical perspective. Secondly, an exhaustive selection and description of<span class="external-identifiers"> <a target="_blank" rel="external noopener" href="https://arxiv.org/abs/2001.07573v1">arXiv:2001.07573v1</a> <a target="_blank" rel="external noopener" href="https://fatcat.wiki/release/h2si3pt6wvd5xkf6b2dibgwj4q">fatcat:h2si3pt6wvd5xkf6b2dibgwj4q</a> </span>
