The CyberOne is also, perhaps, among the biggest humanoid robots in existence and stands relatively tall at 177 centimeters (5 foot 9 inches) and weighing in at just over 52kg (115 pounds). It’s roughly the same size as an average human. Other capabilities of the robot include responding to real-time queries and carrying small objects weighing up to 1.5kg (3.3 pounds) using one hand.
To ensure that the robot’s heft remained in check, Xiaomi engineers had to adhere to strict weight limitations. These restrictions eventually allowed them to limit the weight of the motor powering the limbs to just 500 grams. The main motor — located around the hip joint — can exert a peak torque of over 300 nm, Xiaomi claims.
The launch event also saw Xiaomi talk about its proprietary Mi-Sense depth vision module, used on the CyberOne. Along with Xiaomi’s self-developed algorithms, these technologies apparently lend CyberOne the ability to perceive space in three dimensions. This algorithm also gives the robot the ability to identify specific persons, gestures, and their facial expressions.
Thanks to the inbuilt MiAl environmental semantic recognition engine and MiAl speech emotion recognition engine, the Xiaomi CyberOne — in its current form — can distinguish between 85 different kinds of environmental sounds. In instances where verbal communication might just not be enough, the curved OLED display on the head can be used to display interactive content and related information in real-time.
Xiaomi made it amply clear that the first generation of Xiaomi CyberOne is just the company’s first step towards developing advanced humanoid robots. As such, it will be a while before any of these products make it to your living rooms.
