Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) is an approach that anticipates and assesses potential implications and societal expectations with regard to research and innovation, with the aim to foster the design of inclusive and sustainable research and innovation. While RRI includes many aspects, in certain types of projects ethics and particularly privacy, is arguably the most sensitive topic. The objective in Horizon 2020 innovation project Eyes of Things (EoT) is to build a small high-performance, low-power, computer vision platform (similar to a smart camera) that can work independently and also embedded into all types of artefacts. In this paper, we describe the actions taken within the project related to ethics and privacy. A privacy-by-design approach has been followed, and work continues now in four platform demonstrators.
