Abstract

This position paper discusses the safety-related functions
performed by assistive robots and explores the relationship
between trust and effective safety risk mitigation. We identify
a measure of the robot’s social effectiveness, termed social
credibility, and present a discussion of how social credibility may
be gained and lost. This paper’s contribution is the identification
of a link between social credibility and safety-related performance.
Accordingly, we draw on analyses of existing systems to demonstrate
how an assistive robot’s safety-critical functionality can be
impaired by a loss of social credibility. In addition, we present
a discussion of some of the consequences of prioritising either
safety-related functionality or social engagement. We propose
the identification of a mixed-criticality scheduling algorithm in
order to maximise both safety-related performance and social
engagement.
