Elon Musk stated that Tesla is working on a humanoid robot, with a prototype due in 2022. The jobs, according to the millionaire, will alleviate people’s boredom concerns. He will be able to go to the shop and purchase groceries, for example.
Elon Musk F, Tesla’s CEO, stated in a speech to Artificial Intelligence Day on Thursday that the company will create a humanoid robot. According to the billionaire, the humanoid Tesla Bot prototype will debut in 2022.
In the manufacture of electric cars, which his firm is involved in, the entrepreneur stated that the robot would not replace people. Musk replied, “Perhaps he should be allowed to go to the market and purchase me groceries, or something along those lines.” “It’s meant to be nice and traverse the human environment, as well as to handle risky, monotonous, and boring activities,” he added. The robot, dubbed “Optimus,” is said to be built on the same processors and sensors used in Tesla’s self-driving cars.
The robot’s head will include a screen to convey relevant information, according to Mask’s description. In the event of physical contact with the android, Tesla designed it so that people can flee or defeat it. According to the creators’ presentations, the robot can carry up to 20 kilograms, lift up to 68 kilograms, and weigh around 57 kilograms. According to Musk, the robot would be able to run at a speed of slightly over 8 km/h. He stressed that a guy clad in a robot suit stood next to him throughout the presentation, and that the business will eventually unveil an actual version.
At Artificial Intelligence Day, an unique event sponsored by Tesla to recruit machine learning talent, the news of the construction of an android robot was made. Musk held a demonstration of a product named “The Solar Roof” in the backyard of Universal Studios in Los Angeles in October 2016. According to CNBC, the show’s solar roof tiles were only an idea.
