Elon Musk introduced his robots, like seeing them. Tesla is developing humanoid robots under the name Tesla Bot. But unlike the Boston Dynamics Atlas, you really have to look like people.
Tesla introduced this concept yesterday at an AI Day event. So far only as a live person dressed up as a futuristic robot, which was supposed to be a joke, but the prototype is said to appear sometime next year. Other automakers also have their own robots, for example Honda The robot was developed by Asimo and Boston Dynamics is owned by Hyundai.
Although Tesla makes cars, the Tesla Bot is not meant to be a car robot. Instead, it would have a completely human form and proportions. With a height of 172 cm and a weight of 56 kg, it can move at a speed of 8 km / h (about twice as much as normal walking). However, it will use advanced AI from Tesla’s autopilot and it is likely that the Tesla Bot will eventually be able to drive a Tesla.
Musk said at the event that Tesla now primarily makes robots on wheels. With all the knowledge and the neural network, it makes sense to try to give it a human form. The world is designed for people, so the Tesla Bot also has a human form. Supposedly, he can shop for us, but he can also perform other tasks. Regarding robotics, Musk also mentioned universal basic income, meaning that one day people will get paid even without working and the robots will do the work.
Musk said the robot should be friendly and might need to shop
The black and white body completes the display rather than the face, which is intended to display important non-specific information. Perhaps also information on how to turn it off. But Musk said with humor that the robot could handle a speed of 8 km/h and would run away if there were “problems”.
