He Tesla Botthe humanoid robot developed by Teslais being updated and new capabilities have been revealed in an exciting video. Although we have not yet reached the era where robots are a part of our daily lives, advances in this technology bring us ever closer to that future.
First introduced in August 2021, the Tesla Bot has been in development since last year, as you recall. Wired. Its promised specifications include a height of 1.73 meters, a weight of 57 kg, a maximum movement speed of 8 km/h, an ability to lift weights up to 68 kg and carry objects up to 20 kg. All this is possible thanks to the artificial intelligence (AI) system developed by Tesla for its vehicles.
The video recently shared by Tesla shows the robot in action, walking and performing movements that require precision and sophisticated articulation. In addition to its ability to get around, the Tesla Bot is expected to be able to perform more complex tasks in the future, such as holding and manipulating objects safely and efficiently.
The development of the Tesla Bot is also focused on its ability to understand and memorize the environment using its various sensors. The robot’s artificial intelligence is trained with captured and recorded demonstrations of human movement.
Tesla’s mission with his Tesla Bot
Tesla’s primary goal with the Tesla Bot is to create an autonomous, bipedal humanoid robot capable of performing dangerous, repetitive, or boring tasks. To achieve this, it is required to develop a set of software that allows balance, navigation, perception and interaction with the physical world.
Although mass production and consumer availability have yet to begin, the video featured by Tesla suggests that the Tesla Bot could become a priority in the near future.
According to Elon Musk, the Tesla Bot’s target price could be below $20,000, which would make it affordable and allow for mass production of millions of units. It is expected to have a 2.3 kWh battery, Wi-Fi and LTE connectivity.
