Xiaomi CyberDog now on display across India: Check price, features
Chinese tech giant Xiaomi has unveiled the CyberDog four-legged robot in India. To recall, 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 unclear whether it will go on sale in India.
- To commemorate its 8th anniversary in India, Xiaomi has showcased the CyberDog here.
- The robot comes with the brand's smartphone imaging technology which allows it to perceive its environment.
- Xiaomi claims that it is the 'perfect partner for assisted living.' However, it is a niche product and we do not know if it will be successful in our market.
The Xiaomi CyberDog can mimic the behavior of dogs such as walking, jumping, running, or performing a backflip. It can dodge obstacles, follow you around, and also listens to voice commands similar to a real-life pet. The robot is calibrated with the brand's servo motors which ensure speed and variety in its movement. It has a top speed of around 11.5km/h.
CyberDog packs 11 high-precision sensors which transmit data to the 'brain' in real-time for a realistic biological response. These include touch sensors, GPS modules, and ultrasonic sensors. An interactive AI camera, Intel RealSense D450 depth snapper, and a wide-angle binocular fisheye lens are also available.
The CyberDog is powered by a Jetson Xavier NX AI Supercomputer for Embedded Edge Systems. It comprises 384 CUDA cores, six Carmel ARM CPUs, 48 Tensor cores, and two deep learning acceleration engines. The robot also has 128GB of SSD storage and a high-performance servo motor developed by Xiaomi. The latter delivers a maximum torque output of 32Nm.
The Xiaomi CyberDog is currently being displayed at Mi Homes in Delhi, Chennai, Mumbai, Kolkata, Ahmedabad, and Bengaluru. In China, it costs CNY 9,999 (around Rs. 1.18 lakh) and we do not know whether it will be sold in India.
