Abstract

The last decades have seen continuous attempts to advance the application of robotics and artificial intelligence (AI) research in several areas such as healthcare environments. However, using (semi)autonomous robots in healthcare also poses risks that need to be addressed throughout the systems' lifecycle. In this work, we present our version of a data recorder, as the output of an interdisciplinary research collaboration that addresses relevant social, ethical, legal, and technical aspects of advanced robotics in healthcare. We use social science insights from interviews and ethnographic fieldwork with relevant stakeholders as well as ethical and legal analyses to derive and implement four technical requirements for a data recorder to enhance accountability and transparency of a service humanoid robot, GARMI, assisting in healthcare. We present a tool to log and visualize data from human-robot interactions as a means of including non-expert users and other relevant stakeholders in accountability relationships, which also helps us to enhance the transparency of advanced robotics in general and to fulfill the examined requirements of the Medical Device Regulation (MDR) and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
