Elon Musk’s Tesla Bot
Tesla is building an AI-powered humanoid robot – the Tesla Bot, revealed by Elon Musk at his company’s AI Day event. He added it is designed as friendly, slow, and weak enough that anyone can overpower it. It is designed to perform various repetitive tasks that are unsafe or boring for humans. It will be like 5′ 8″ tall with a screen for a face and weigh around 125 pounds. Inside the company, it has been given the code “Optimus.”
Using Its Autopilot technology
Elon Musk is leveraging the experience he has with his automated machines in its company. The CEO said that they are working on an AI-powered humanoid robot. The company has hardware and software that powers its Autopilot driver-assistance technology. The Tesla humanoid robot will be operated on artificial intelligence like its Autopilot technology for its vehicles. It will make navigation easy without step-by-step guidance. He said it would require simple commands to follow, such as “Please pick that auto part and connect it to the vehicle using that wrench.” It can also follow the command to get groceries and common alike tasks.
Musk has expressed fears repeatedly about runaway AI. He said the robot building is intended just at a mechanical level and most likely overpower it. He said, in the future, it will be a choice to work physically.
Designs Near to Tail
The company has showcased some of the AI and supercomputer technologies that are used to achieve the goal. The CEO said that the drawings of the Tesla bot are near the tail. They had a non-working mannequin version also in the event.
Tesla’s history is full of inventive ideas such as solar-powered Supercharger network, robotic snake-style chargers, battery swapping, and so on.
Recent research reveals that only 1.3% of companies have adopted robotic technology. Increased investment in robots will prove a wiser decision than just like other big bets.
