Elon Musk Tesla Bot - an intelligent robot with a human body

 Elon Musk aims to build the Tesla Bot, an intelligent robot with a human body.

 Elon Musk aspires to make the Tesla Bot the most powerful humanoid robot ever built. In order to accomplish so, he will employ some of the Artificial Intelligence technologies found in Tesla vehicles.

Some science fiction films, such as "A.I. Artificial Intelligence," "Terminator," "I Robot," and "The Bicentennial Man," have already presented the possibility of a society in which intelligent robots in humanoid form coexisted with humans. It looked far away, even surreal, but that future has found its way to us and will soon become a reality.

The Tesla Bot, which will become the most powerful human-shaped robot in the world, will be designed by businessman Elon Musk, who will combine some of the Artificial Intelligence technologies used in his Tesla cars to create the Tesla Bot.

He employed a costumed figurehead of the robot in his presentation at Tesla AI Day, where he displayed a mock-up of the robot, with whom he joked about the matter: "Obviously, this is not a genuine robot, but the Tesla Bot will be."

Musk's goal with Tesla Bot is to "create the next generation of automation, including a general-purpose bipedal humanoid robot capable of doing dangerous, monotonous, or boring activities," according to Musk.

The robot will be 1.72 meters tall, weigh 57 kilos, and drive at a top speed of 8 kilometers per hour, with a futuristic, aseptic external design. It will also be able to lift up to 68 kilograms and transport goods weighing up to 20 kilograms.

It will be able to move thanks to the usage of 40 electromechanical actuators scattered throughout its body, 12 of which will be in the hands and will have a high torque. This will result in a powerful superhuman with autonomous thinking, which will be designed to work in factories performing monotonous and risky duties at first, but it is not ruled out that it may subsequently conduct other forms of work.

The "brain" of the Tesla Bot will be powered by the same technology that Tesla automobiles use for autonomous driving; according to Musk, it is the world's most powerful Artificial Intelligence chip architecture. Other Tesla Bot features, such as autopilot cameras in its head, will be borrowed from the company's automobiles.

Elon Musk has stated that this robot will be "real" and "kind" to humans, and that a prototype will be available in 2022, despite the fact that there is still a long way to go before we see it in action.
