CyberDog 2: Xiaomi’s Next-Gen Open-Source Robot Dog Now Powered With AI

Xiaomi unveiled CyberDog 2, a new version of their open-source robotic dog. Cyberdog 2 looks a lot less scary than the first model and is said to be smarter, thanks to AI.

Weighing in at 8.9 kilograms and standing 36.7 centimeters tall, it’s a more compact and realistic version of the original. But don’t let its size fool you — this robotic canine can sprint at a speed of 1.6 meters per second, leaving the original’s 3.2 meters per second in the dust.

Internally developed servomotors provide greater torque, faster response, and more precise control. Whether it’s recovering from a fall or performing continuous backflips, the CyberDog 2 does it with grace and agility.

What sets the CyberDog 2 apart is its use of multimodal AI. Through Reinforcement Learning, it senses human presence, makes decisions, and even learns on its own. The software is at least partially open source, allowing developers to design programs for the robotic dog.

Powered by Jetson Xavier NX processor capable of executing 21 trillion operations per second, this is a true technological beast. The hardware arsenal is equally impressive, boasting an RGB camera, interactive AI camera, ultrasonic sensor, LiDAR, depth-perceiving camera, fisheye sensors, and more.

With over 100 open code interfaces and freely available visualization engine code, it’s a playground for developers. The continuous open-source ecosystem invites innovation and promotes progress in bio-inspired robots.

For those eager to buy Xiaomi’s CyberDog, be prepared for a price tag that reflects its technological prowess. Priced at 12,999 yuan (approximately $1,800), it’s a step up from the original’s price.
