"During the autonomous run, SpotMini uses data from the cameras to localize itself in the map and to detect and avoid obstacles", the company said.
When the SpotMini will go up for sale isn't clear, but the company has been teasing its features in recent months, showing that the robot dog can also open doors with the help of an attachable robot hand.
Boston Dynamics' SpotMini was introduced late previous year and took the design of the company's "bigger brother" quadruped Spot.
The SpotMini "comfortably fits in an office or home". The announcement came onstage at TechCrunch's TC Sessions: Robotics event today at UC Berkeley.
Its other projects include Spot, a dog-like robot; Handle, a robot with legs and wheels, which can pick up heavy loads and manoeuvre over tough terrain; and WildCat, the world's fastest robot on four legs.

"SpotMini in pre-production now", said Raibert. "We've built 10 units [of] a design that's close to [what] a manufacture will design".
On its website, Boston Dynamics highlights that SpotMini is the "quietest robot [they] have built".
"That's a prelude to getting into a higher rate of production" in anticipation of sales next year, Raibert said. It can move around for up to 90 minutes on a single charge. The first version of the SpotMini walked, rolled over and even put objects in a dishwasher. Truth is, Boston Dynamics has so far revealed little about the SpotMini, choosing instead to modify it before filming skits and posting them on YouTube.
"Once the operator presses "GO" at the beginning of the video, the robot is on its own", Boston Dynamics added.
In any case, we're looking forward to seeing the SpotMini in the flesh (or its robotic equivalent).
