We introduce at first the system-theoretic approach to complex systems safety analysis and compare it with the traditional approaches. Then we analyze hazards which may face a mobile robot following the three laws of robotics. We focus on hazard of collision with an obstacle and an appropriate robot behavior mitigating this hazard. After reviewing the principal classes of robot control architectures, we evaluate their safety in obstacle avoidance
