The Robo TAP adds a new capability to current robotic vacuum cleaners: human guided targeting. An indoor positioning system (IPS) is synchronized to a small remote control attached to the user's shoe. Two show-taps on a dirty spot alerts the Robo TAP to the spot. Two more taps will cancel the summons and three taps tells the robot to go back to its predetermined route.
