Second-hand sensing is the process of using beacons, labels, markers, and other pre-compiled sensing cues. When using second-hand sensing, a cashier does not have to identify what the product is, and then look up the price, that information has been pre-compiled into the UPC code. In the same way, robo-vac’s job can be greatly simplified by thoughtful placement of sensible cues in the household environment. This paper discusses this process.
