CyberDog uses Xiaomi proprietary servo motors, with which the robot can perform a series of movements at speeds up to 3.2 m / s and complex actions, including backflips.

CyberDog will be released in a circulation of one thousand pieces, the price will be $ 1542. The four-legged CyberDog robot is aimed at Xiaomi fans, robotics enthusiasts, and engineers. CyberDog is built on open-source algorithms. 

The company explains:

CyberDog is Xiaomi's first effort to create four-legged robotics for the open source community and software developers around the world. Robotics enthusiasts interested in CyberDog can compete or create together with like-minded people and fans of Xiaomi, contributing to the development and potential of four-legged robots. "

Among the features of the robotic dog are the Nvidia Jetson Xavier NX platform, a 128 GB SSD, eleven different sensors, including touch and ultrasonic sensors, binocular ultra-wide-angle cameras, and the Intel RealSense D450 depth module, as well as a GPS module. Of the ports, there are three USB Type-C and HDMI. It weighs 3 kg.  

CyberDog can move independently, analyze the environment in real-time, create navigation maps, determine the destination and avoid obstacles. The robot can be assigned a code word for waking up, controlled by voice, using a remote control or a smartphone.
