Xiaomi CyberOne Smart Robot Introduction
At August 11th’s press conference, besides the 2nd generation foldable Mix Fold and other smart gadgets, Xiaomi also shared the latest progress in the exploration of intelligent robots, Xiaomi’s first full-size humanoid bionic robot Xiaomi CyberOne Smart Robot officially unveiled, as One More Thing.
Xiaomi’s first full-size humanoid bionic robot Xiaomi CyberOne has a lot to see, internal nickname “Tie Da”, 177cm tall, weighing 52 kg, can be a three-dimensional virtual reconstruction of the real world (self-research Mi-Sense depth vision module, combined with AI algorithms to provide complete three-dimensional spatial perception capabilities, see and understand). The “small brain” developed, can achieve bipedal movement posture balance, strong limbs, power peak torque 300Nm, etc.
CyberOne supports more than 21 degrees of freedom, and can achieve each degree of freedom 0.5 millisecond level of real-time response, simulating the movements of people, the body has several built-in motors, there are more degrees of freedom of the body, complex humanoid biped control algorithm, all of which is Xiaomi self-research.
Lei Jun conference also proudly said that the intelligence behind CyberOne, mechanical capabilities, all by the Xiaomi robotics laboratory full-stack self-research completed, behind the hardware and software/algorithm development work, is huge, so the gold content is also quite high.
For consumers, this product may not perceive much, but for there is Xiaomi, this is a very innovative product, it is no wonder Lei Jun will be proud to say that Xiaomi CyberOne with artificial intelligence as the core, standard humanoid as the carrier, is an exploration of the future technology ecology of Xiaomi, but also the new results of Xiaomi’s multi-faceted integration technology system.
CyberOne is equipped with a self-researched MiAl environmental semantic recognition engine and MiAl voice emotion recognition engine, capable of 85 kinds of environmental sound recognition and 45 kinds of human emotion recognition in 6 categories, and even “able to give you a hug when you are lost like an old friend. “All of the above capabilities are integrated into the brain of CyberOne. CyberOne’s brain is integrated with a curved OLED display module to display interactive information in real-time.
CyberOne is Xiaomi’s exploration process to build a “connect people and everything” technology ecology, and is also a comprehensive display of mechanical/AI technology at this stage, which is why Musk said Tesla also wants to do this product, and even stated that this is the future of technology products.
The last special point is that, in addition to the robotic algorithm and perception ability being important, the key to the body is equally important, which is behind the design of the motor, Xiaomi said self-research a weight of only 500 grams, rated output torque of 30nm motor to ensure the flexibility of the upper limbs.
CyberOne’s hip joint main motor instantaneous peak torque up to 300nm, with a self-researched humanoid biped control algorithm, walking posture more smooth. In other aspects, CyberOne supports the one-handed holding of 1.5 kg weights, reverse dragging upper limbs to reproduce the movement, and other functions.
Lei Jun said that in the field of intelligent robotics, the humanoid bionic robot has the highest degree of technology integration and the greatest difficulty, Xiaomi is still in the first stage of just starting, and CyberOne is learning new skills every day, “we believe that in the future, intelligent robots will enter people’s lives.”
According to Lei Jun, humanoid robots need to break through several key technologies, Xiaomi is “extremely optimistic about the application of intelligent robots in life and work”, the current cost of humanoid robots is about 600,000 to 700,000 yuan per unit, and mass production is not yet possible, Xiaomi will continue to work in this field.
