On AI Day, Tesla unveiled Optimus, a walking humanoid robot that might be available for purchase by 2027. Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla, presented Optimus, the company’s robot. At Tesla AI Day 2022, Tesla showed two prototype Tesla bots that could walk, wave, and even grasp objects with their fingers. According to Musk, the robot is anticipated to be released in three to five years at a cost of $20,000.
A brief about On AI Day, Tesla unveiled Optimus, a walking humanoid robot that might be available for purchase by 2027:
The company’s objective, according to Musk, is to produce an usable humanoid robot as quickly as possible. The humanoid robots could potentially “assist millions of people,” he continues, but their initial use will be in the Tesla automobile plants.
Two Tesla bot prototypes were shown by Musk at the Tesla AI Day 2022 gathering. The first walking model was created using mechanical actuators, cylindrical devices that incorporate a motor with gearing and sensors. The second displayed model was brought onto the stage since she was unable to walk. Tesla’s actuators were in charge of its limbs and fingers. However, thanks to its actuators, it can raise one leg out to the side and use the other to grip.
The second one, according to Musk, isn’t quite ready to walk yet, but it will do so in a few weeks. It is noteworthy that the second version of the Optimus prototype weighs just approximately 161 pounds (73 kg) and uses a variant of the FSD autonomous vehicle technology developed by Tesla.
The Tesla Bot is run by the same AI programme that Tesla employs to run its vehicles. Robots and Tesla’s autopilot system must account for the vast variety of the actual environment, although artificial intelligence technology excels at particular jobs. It’s possible that Optimus will start out life in peace. The Austin-based automaker plans to use it initially at Tesla’s own facilities.
