Details of Cyberdog 2
It also has a greater and rounded shape, as well as a canine-like head and tail. The CyberDog 2 features 12 servo motor vehicles, so as to precisely adjust its legs and head movements. CyberDog 2 is smaller and much sturdier than its predecessor. It can change its color to match its surroundings, thanks to its color-changing e-ink skin.
This smart robodog comes loaded with a plethora of features, including an RGB camera, an AI-powered interactive camera, 4 ToF sensors, LiDAR, a depth camera, an ultrasonic sensor, a fisheye lens sensor, and inertial measurement. These features allow it to accomplish incredible tasks.
Xiaomi’s patented CyberGear micromotors power the CyberDog 2, making them smaller and more powerful than traditional servo vehicles. This gives the CyberDog 2 a great deal of flexibility to accomplish more intricate maneuvers, including backflips in motion. Aside from carrying out instructions, this robodog could potentially follow behind its owner. It can also replicate actions such as drinking water and eating food. It can also perform other services, like delivery or patrolling a place.
This robot is currently under development. It has the ability to be an exceedingly beneficial device in a number of situations. Home assistance, safety and security, delivery and logistics, entertainment, and education are among them. So he is a candidate to be your best friend. It’s more like a pet than a robot.
