Abstract

The EPSRC’s Principles of Robotics dictates the implementation of transparency in robotic systems, however, research related to it is in its infancy. The current paper introduces the reader to the need of having transparent to inspection intelligent agents. We provide a robust definition of transparency, as a mechanism to expose
the decision making of the robot, by considering and expanding upon other prominent definitions found in literature. The paper concludes by addressing potentials design decisions developers need to consider when designing transparent systems.
