The Making of Robot Care
Marc Böhlen and Tero Karppi
The health industry is investing in robotics because it has the potential to optimize workflows and reduce the workloads of healthcare professionals. However, these optimizations come at a cost. By looking at three different robot systems and their underlying control architectures, this paper will
describe some of the dynamics generated by the migration of computational logic developed for industrial robot systems to the healthcare domain. We combine a reading of robot control systems with perspectives from cultural techniques to uncover dynamics that neither approach can detect independently.
