We introduce a system to assign navigation tasks to a self-moving robot using an Augmented Reality (AR) application running on a smartphone. The system relies on a robot controller and a central server hosted on a PC. The user points at a target location in the phone camera view and the robot moves accordingly. The robot and the phone are independently located in the 3D space thanks to registration methods running on the server, hence they do not need to be spatially registered to each other nor in direct line of sight.
