Heard of tesla but don't know what it is supposed to do?
Elon Musk introduced the world to the Tesla Bot at tesla's ai day event. Elon Musk unveiled the tesla bot a humanoid robot. It's a slim human-like machine. The body is white with gray accents from its feet to where its collarbones would be, then it's all black.
Elon Musk shared a couple of slides showing what to expect from the tesla bot. A friendly five foot eight robot weighing only 125 pounds (approximately 56 kgs) and since it is built out of undisclosed lightweight materials, it would be able to carry 45 pounds (approximately 20 kgs) and deadlift 150 pounds(approximately 68 kgs). The tesla bot is not quite fast as it reaches speeds of up to 5 miles per hour( 8kmph) and it has been intentionally given a low speed so that Humans can outrun the bot basically overpower the bot in case there's a catastrophe caused by Artificial Intelligence which we would hope not to happen.
One of the goals of the tesla bot is to eliminate dangerous repetitive boring tasks and replace human beings doing monotonous and/or dangerous chores. Now coming to the technical details, the head would feature a screen to provide information to whoever is looking at the bot. It would run on tesla's full self-driving computer with an autopilot system using eight cameras to help Artificial Intelligence. is a big part of tesla's bot. The bots will also be using the "Neural Net Cleaning Simulation" and "Multicam Video Neural Networks" which are already being used by Tesla's autonomous vehicles. Elon Musk also mentioned that these bots will be having such a powerful AI that they'll be able to do tasks it has not been explicitly programmed to and the prototype of the bot could be a reality in the year 2022.
Why is a car company making Humanoid Robots?
To this Elon replied that Tesla is already making Self-driving vehicles which are basically semi-sentient robots on wheels. He also explained that the robot is not specifically prompted by manufacturing needs he also had this to say "We're just obviously making the pieces that are needed for a useful humanoid robot so I guess we probably should make it and if we don't, someone else would so I guess we should make it and make sure it's safe".
In a session, the tesla team was asked if emotion and companionship is on the road map for Tesla Bot Musk answered " I'm sure people will think of some very creative uses the team was also asked about how important it is to maintain a humanoid form with hands that have five fingers", Musk explained that they'll start with five fingers for version one and see if it works the bot needs to be able to do things like work with tools or carry a bag. There was also a question about the economics of the Tesla bot if the bot is designed to take on boring repetitive and dangerous tasks
which can be low-paying for humans. If you want to help develop the tesla bot you can
check out tesla's official website. The job description reads develop the next generation of automation including a general-purpose bipedal humanoid robot capable of performing tasks that are unsafe repetitive or boring.
