Elon Musk; Reveals Tesla New humanoid robot And Release Date

Tesla, at AI Day Event, Hints at Cybertruck Release Date and humanoid Robot.

  • During its AI Day event, Tesla showed an animated video rendering of a car equipped with its self-driving technology navigating traffic and making turns without prompting from the human in the driver’s seat, presumably as a promise for technology to come.
  • The company also showed off a proprietary microchip designed to run the supercomputer, called Dojo, that Tesla uses for all of its cars’ self-driving functions.
  • Toward the end of the event, Musk stood on stage with a dancer wearing a robot costume as he claimed Tesla is going to build a humanoid robot prototype by next year.

Elon Musk reveals Tesla is building a humanoid robot

Elon Musk revealed on Thursday that Tesla is building a humanoid robot and aims to have a prototype. 

During the company’s AI Day, Musk said that the “Tesla Bot” is intended to be friendly and it will do tasks considered “boring, repetitive and dangerous.”

The Tesla CEO believes it will be able perform chores such as going to the store to fetch groceries or helping fix cars, but on a larger level, he predicts the creation will have “profound implications” for the economy.  

He said their latest ambition is not far off from what the company does with their signature electric cars. 

“If you think about what we’re doing right now with the cars, Tesla is arguably the world’s biggest robotics company, because cars are like semi-sentiment, robots on wheels,” he said. 

The robot will stand around 5 feet 8 inches and have a screen with useful information, Musk said. He said it will have an

autopilot system, eight cameras and run about 5 miles per hour, so users can “most likely overpower it.” 

“Hopefully that doesn’t ever happen, but you never know,” he joked. 

The robot announcement comes amid a formal investigation by the U.S. government into Tesla’s Autopilot partially

automated driving system after a series of collisions with parked emergency vehicles.

The investigation covers 765,000 vehicles, almost everything that Tesla has sold in the U.S. since the start of the 2014 model year.

Of the crashes identified by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration as part of the probe, 17 people were injured and one was killed
