Robot accidents are inevitable. In this talk I will outline a draft framework for social robot accident investigation; a framework that proposes both the technology and processes that would allow social robot accidents to be investigated and lessons learned. I will position accident investigation within the practice of responsible robotics and argue that social robotics without accident investigation would be no less irresponsible than aviation without air accident investigation.
