On Monday, Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun introduced the CyberDog 2, the company’s second-generation quadrupedal robot, with a price of RMB 12,999 ($1,785). The CyberDog 2 looks more like a natural dog compared to its predecessor, Lei said. Xiaomi trained the Cyberdog 2 with 30,000 simulated AI dogs to achieve various enhanced movements, including jumps, bowing, flips, and quick recovery from falling. It features a set of 12 micro-actuators called CyberGear, enabling the robot to run at a speed of 1.6m/s. The robot also supports gesture interaction, voice control, obstacle avoidance, and face recognition. Currently, the Cyberdog 2 is limited for sale in the Chinese market. [IThome, in Chinese]
