CyberDog is Xiaomi’s first foray into quadruped robotics for the open-source community and developers worldwide. Robotics enthusiasts interested in CyberDog can compete or co-create with other like-minded Xiaomi Fans, propelling quadruped robots’ development and potential of quadruped robots. CyberDog is calibrated with Xiaomi’s in-house developed servo motors that translate into great speed, agility, and a wide range of motion. With a maximum torque output and rotation speed up to 32N·m/220Rpm, CyberDog can conduct a range of high-speed movements up to 3.2m/s and complicated actions such as backflips.
Powering CyberDog’s brain is the NVIDIA® Jetson Xavier™ NX platform, an AI Supercomputer for Embedded and Edge Systems, including 384 CUDA® Cores, 48 Tensor Cores, a 6 Carmel ARM CPU, and 2 deep learning acceleration engines. For its owners, CyberDog processes massive data captured from its sensor system without a hitch.
CyberDog is equipped with 11 high-precision sensors that provide instant feedback to guide its movements to fully model biological organisms. This includes touch sensors, cameras, ultrasonic sensors, GPS modules, and more, giving the CyberDog enhanced capability to sense, analyze, and interact with its environment.
CyberDog itself is built upon open-source algorithms, with Xiaomi reconstructing and optimizing in-house developed core modules. Today, Xiaomi is releasing 1,000 units of CyberDog to Xiaomi Fans, engineers, and robotic enthusiasts to jointly explore the immense possibility of CyberDog. It will also set up the “Xiaomi Open Source Community” to constantly share progress and results with developers around the world, and promises to establish a robotics laboratory to provide a platform for engineers to continue the pursuit of future innovations.
