Chinese tech giant Xiaomi has unveiled the CyberDog four-legged robot in India. As a reminder, it was introduced in the company’s home country last year.
Xiaomi’s first quadruped robot is equipped with 11 sensors to guide its movements. It can also be customized both in terms of hardware and software.
It is not known whether it will go on sale in India.
Why is this story important?
- To commemorate its 8th anniversary in India, Xiaomi introduced the CyberDog here.
- The robot comes with the brand’s smartphone imaging technology that allows it to perceive its surroundings.
- Xiaomi claims it is the “ideal partner for assisted living”. However, it is a niche product and we don’t know if it will succeed in our market.
The CyberDog can do backflips
The Xiaomi CyberDog can imitate dog behavior such as walking, jumping, running or performing a backflip.
It can dodge obstacles, follow you, and listen to voice commands similar to those of a real pet.
The robot is calibrated with the brand’s servomotors that ensure speed and variety in its movements. It has a top speed of around 11.5 km/h.
His whole body is covered in sensors
CyberDog contains 11 high-precision sensors that transmit data to the “brain” in real time for realistic biological response. These include touch sensors, GPS modules and ultrasonic sensors. An interactive AI camera, Intel RealSense D450 depth snapper, and wide-angle binocular fisheye lens are also available.
It has 128 GB of built-in SSD storage
The CyberDog is powered by a Jetson Xavier NX AI supercomputer for Embedded Edge systems.
It features 384 CUDA cores, six Carmel ARM processors, 48 Tensor cores, and two deep learning acceleration engines.
The robot also has 128 GB of SSD storage and a high-performance servo motor developed by Xiaomi. The latter delivers a maximum output torque of 32 Nm.
