Robot Assistance in Medication Management Tasks


Conference: Proceedings of the Human-Robot Interaction (HRI) Pioneers Workshop

Jason R. Wilson

A robot in the home of an elderly person providing assistive care will face many difficult decisions. I focus on a set of tasks that are very common and often stressful. Medication management tasks are ideal for a robot to assist in, but even a task with straightforward guidelines and goals can have numerous moral issues brought about by the social interaction between the human and the robot.
