Optimus, also known as Tesla Bot, is a conceptual general-purpose robotic humanoid under development by Tesla, Inc.Tesla Bot is planned to measure 5 ft 8 in (173 cm) tall and weigh 125 lb (57 kg).
According to the presentation made during the first AI Day event, a Tesla Bot will be “controlled by the same AI system Tesla is developing for the advanced driver-assistance system used in its cars” and have a carrying capacity of 45 lb (20 kg). Multiple fully Tesla-made bots now walking around & learning about the real world.
“We develop and deploy autonomy at scale in vehicles, robots and more. We believe that an approach based on advanced AI for vision and planning, supported by efficient use of inference hardware, is the only way to achieve a general solution for full self-driving, bi-pedal robotics and beyond.”
Create a general purpose, bi-pedal, autonomous humanoid robot capable of performing unsafe, repetitive or boring tasks. Achieving that end goal requires building the software stacks that enable balance, navigation, perception and interaction with the physical world.
