The robot cleaning robot tinkers with the cleaning robot, cleaning the filter and removing the dust and dirt. It then rides over to the kitchen garbage can (bin in English English) checks that there is a bag in there and disposes the garbage into it.

Version II also handles the garbage can itself, removing and replacing the plastic bag, cleaning the can if it got dirty and taking the garbage via elevator or stairs to the main garbage downstairs if there is no incinerator in the building.

       A fixed base station that cleaned the brushes and emptied the bin/cleaned the filter wouldn't be the worst idea. And it could have a larger storage chamber so it only needed to be emptied every so often.

       This idea is great, but what happens when this device gets dirty? How will it get cleaned?

       It doesn't have to be recursive. It can be iterative.   

       "Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their labor. For if they fall, one will lift up his companion. But woe to him who is alone when he falls, for he has no one to help him up. Again, if two lie down together, they will keep warm; but how can one be warm alone? Though one may be overpowered by another, two can withstand him. And a threefold cord is not quickly broken."   

       Wireless also helps.

       In "The Cat in The Hat Comes Back" the little cat Z has a cleaning product under his hat with amazing abilities to clean cat bathtub ring scum from things, even robots.

       I think the bin/garbage thing is important. Now I'm in America, I have a garbage can. Can I get a swap? because our neighborhood only seems to take away trash. Frankly I'm confused, because everyone refers to the garbage guys and trash night, when do the trash guys come? What if I put garbage in a trash can?

       Put your aubergine peels in your garbage, but put your eggplant peels in your trash.   

       They'll know what to do.
