New research from UNSW,  Harvard University, and the University of Melbourne has found that governments need to start planning for an expanding presence of robots and associated technologies across care organisations. In doing so the research examined the benefits and costs of robotic  technology in and amongst care organisations. Robots are already being used in various care services whether this be in aged or disability care and they have increasingly augmented support services provided to people that need care services the most.

As robots expand into organisations that provide care and respite, there are key issues which this new research considers such as privacy and data security along with more government regulation surrounding robotic technologies and it’s integration into the care services sector.
