As a technology company, robotics is also in Tesla's research scope, in a recent interview, Musk also revealed tesla humanoid robot research progress.
Tesla CEO Elon Musk said in an interview with robotics scientist Fred Man,A Tesla robot wouldn't just be a humanoid robot that could perform repetitive tasks, it might have its own personality,The company, of course, didn't specify the launch schedule for tesla's robots, but said it expects to have "a good prototype by the end of next year."
At tesla AI Day, Musk unveiled the Tesla Humanoid robot, which is 1.75 meters tall and weighs 56 kilograms. It is made of "lightweight materials" and looks smoother than human skin.
Musk said the robot shares tesla's AI system,Musk thinks it makes sense to put the supercomputer that helps train cars to navigate city streets without human help into humanoid form.
At the same time, the robot has a screen on its face that displays specific information. It also has human-level hands, and its limbs are controlled by 40 electromechanical actuators. Both feet can sense and feedback, achieving balance and agility, and can run up to 8 km/h.
The autopilot camera will basically act as the tesla robot's vision system, while the fully autonomous computer will act as the robot's internal organ.
And as a humanoid robot that can perform repetitive tasks, it could help solve labor shortages.
Asked in an interview if he would consider a Tesla robot as a human companion,"There are infinite possibilities, and it would be very meaningful to develop humanoid robots that could help humans," Musk said.
