Tesla Bot will replace factory workers
For the first time, everyone saw the Tesla Bot in August of this year. Although it was not a robot, but a man in an intriguing suit, we learned something interesting about this invention. Now we know what it will be created for.
Tesla has its own powerful artificial intelligence processor that allows vehicles to travel on the road without a driver. Mask came up with the idea to use this technology in robots. That’s how the Tesla Bot was born.
The humanoid robot was released on the first day of Tesla AI Day in August 2021. Then Musk talked about Tesla’s machine learning and artificial intelligence technologies. Of course, most of the event was dedicated to electric, and soon fully autonomous vehicles of this brand, but there was room for future inventions.
The robot will move on two legs, its height is 172 cm, weight is 56 kg. Its maximum speed will be about 8 km/h. At the moment, the Tesla Bot in PowerPoint is only under development. Despite this, Musk already has a ready-made plan for using an army of these machines. Ultimately, the billionaire wants to replace workers in his factories with them, and then make robots available to other corporations around the world. When should we wait for the first prototype? The Tesla boss is not too open about this yet.
However, we can learn from unofficial sources that work on the Tesla Bot is already underway, and the first prototype may appear next year.
