What is Tesla Bot?

Tesla Bot is a 5-feet 8-inch robot that Musk claims will be built to do all the mundane household work. The robot will weigh 57 kg. The Tesla Bot or Optimus will be using AI tech that is similar to what the company uses in its cars. This means a lot of ADAS features will be implemented in the robot. The robot will be able to carry a weight of 20 kg. Elon claims it will be built for "dangerous, repetitive and boring" work that humans don't want to do.


There has been a growing emphasis on the Tesla Bot and its future. Musk even claimed that Tesla cars are essentially semi-sentient robots on wheels. This changes a lot as he essentially branded the car company as a robot company. Musk even went on to claim that robot manufacturing will become a bigger business that car manufacturing in years to come.

What will happen on AI Day 2022?
