Abstract

Improvements in wearable camera technologies are providing academic and industry researchers with new ways to answer questions about participant behaviour. Although promising, these methods raise a number of ethical concerns in regards to agency, accountability, third party trust, and the delegation of responsibility. In this paper we consider the use of wearable cameras in research through the utilisation and adaptation of the Ethical Technology Assessment (eTA) method within a workshop involving a group of stakeholders, including researchers, technologists, and research participants. We conclude the paper with recommended principles for researchers and ethics review committees interested in assessing the usage of wearable cameras for conducting research outside of lab settings.
