Tesla Developing Humanoid Robots: Tesla has actually announced that it is going to build a humanoid robot called the Tesla Bot and it will be able to grab your groceries and do other small things for you.
Yes, this is not a joke.
In ‘AI Day’ today, Tesla released several details about its progress in developing AI technology to power its self-driving system.
But as we expected, there was a “one more thing” moment, it was nothing more than robots.
CEO Elon Musk has announced that Tesla plans to create a humanoid robot called the Tesla Bat.
Musk explained that Tesla is already the largest robotics company in the world, considering the capabilities of its vehicles and looking at and understanding the world around them, and dealing with that information.
The CEO believes it makes sense for Tesla to use their significant advancement in computer vision, but instead of deploying the robot on 4 wheels, the company will do it on a humanoid robot.
Musk said the Tesla bot was focused on doing “repetitive and boring tasks”.
Here are the basic specs for the robot, as explained by Tesla during the show:
It shares many of the technologies found on Tesla vehicles today, receiving data from similar sensors, including FSD computers.
Tesla has released this slide regarding the AI hardware in the Tesla bot.
Using a similar AI hardware suite will affect the progress Tesla is already making in the process of providing a fully self-driving car.
A new field of technology for Tesla will be the humanoid format, of which Tesla has released only small details:
Prior to that, we previously reported that Tesla was working with renowned roboticist Dennis Hong, who specializes in humanoid robots.
Although Musk did not go into much detail about the overall capabilities of the Tesla bot and what it could do, he suggested that the ultimate goal was that the robot could eventually replace the most “dangerous, repetitive” position. , And boring tasks. “
He specifically suggested taking the Tesla boat to the store as an example of your grocery.
But the CEO says they’re almost making the robot because they already created almost all the technology and “if Tesla doesn’t, someone else will” and they want to make it safer.
The CEO said the company plans to prepare a prototype for “some time next year”.
