Tesla has created a humanoid-sized sentient robot. Elon Musk unveiled this in the Tesla AI day presentation. The so-called “Tesla Bot” is a concept for a sleek, 125-pound humanoid robot that will use Tesla’s artificial intelligence and autopilot capabilities to plan and follow routes, handle traffic (in this case, pedestrians), and avoid obstructions. When you hear it, the first thing that comes to mind is probably, “Why Tesla of all companies?” Second, why, of all things, is a robot-human? Let’s dive into it.
Tesla is a software firm that is noted for its high-end, top-of-the-line and advanced systems. Because their software advantage and everything they do with the software in their cars is so crucial to them. It’s as if they’re a software firm that also makes electric vehicles. So, in comparison to the Mercedes, the Audi, or the BMW’s of the world, I would never classify those firms as software companies, but that is Tesla’s biggest edge.
Why Humanoid robot?
The key goal, the purpose of this Tesla Bot, the thing that they kept saying on stage during the presentation and during Q&As when they were asked about it, was that it would be able to conduct repetitive, risky, or boring work so that humans wouldn’t have to. Kind of silly don’t u think? Even though this is all we got from Tesla about Tesla Bot.
Tesla Bot – It is a Humanoid robot with a White body and a Black face with a display on it. It’s a 5’8, 125 pounds, sleek-looking like black and white human-shaped robot with this face mask, with the screen on it. It’s got hands with, you know, full 10 fingers. It’s got feet, but with no toes. Also accompanied by lots and lots of cameras and sensors.
Tesla Bot capabilities
Musk claims that the Tesla Bot will not be able to overpower or outrun humans. It can walk at a speed of 5 mph (8.04 km/hr), which is perfectly fine and manageable for any regular person. The robot will be capable of carrying 45 pounds (20.4 kg), deadlifting 150 pounds (68 kg), and lifting up to 10 pounds (4.5 kg). AI-enabled autopilot cameras, FSD computers, multi-cam video neural networks, auto-labeling, simulation and tools, and DOJO training will all be included in the Tesla Bot requirements. All of these concepts are currently incomprehensible to us because Tesla has yet to explain how they will be used on the Bot.

What can it do for you?
- Tesla Bot is a robot that is programmed to undertake “risky, monotonous, or dull” jobs.
- Tesla’s robot is one of the first non-automotive applications of the company’s cutting-edge robotics technology, which it is going to use in its self-driving cars.
- Tesla Bot will incorporate Tesla’s automotive artificial intelligence and autopilot technologies to plan and follow routes, navigate traffic.
