US-based Tesla, known for making electric vehicles, is in the business of solar roofs and solar panels. Now, the company is expanding its business and is set to launch a humanoid robot called Tesla Bot.
While making this announcement on AI Day, an actor in a body suit appeared on stage and Elon Musk pointed out that the Tesla boat would look similar. This announcement gives a look at Tesla’s future, as the company is working on exciting new products that will be introduced in the future.
CEO of Tesla has revealed that the company will build a humanoid robot and a prototype of the same could be unveiled next year. However, we would advise you to take this with a pinch of salt as such developments rarely happen on a given timeline and Tesla has a history of not sticking to the predicted timeframe
There is a possibility that the product does not even see the light. For example, a few years ago, in April 2019, Elon Musk told Tesla that by 2020 there would be one million autonomous “robotoxis” on the road. This is 2021, and that robotoxis is nowhere to be seen.
The Tesla boat has the codename “Optimus” and runs on the same chips and sensors that the company uses for self-driving features in cars. The robot is about five feet eight inches tall and has a screen with a head for useful information. It can carry 45 pounds, lift 150 pounds and run 5 miles per hour.
Musk says that if the humanoid robot works, the company has the opportunity to change the world economy by reducing labor costs and that today only humans can do repetitive tasks. But he has warned that the robot will not work at first.
The popularity of robots is growing, and thanks to advances in technology, many companies are now working to build robots. Recently, Chinese smartphone maker Xiaomi, Cyberdog, unveiled a bio-inspired quadrilateral robot that works in conjunction with 128GB of industrial grade SSD powered by Nvidia’s Jetson Xavier NX AI supercomputer.
It can be controlled with mobile app, voice control and remote control. There are many movements such as running, jumping, turning left or right and leaning forward. The robot can perform a backflip, roll around and stand on its hind legs. It has a maximum walking speed of 3.2m / s and a maximum payload of 3kg. It is priced at 9,999 yuan, which translates to about $ 1,541.
