Tesla now also builds robots

San Francisco, Jan. 23, 2022

Tesla is currently developing a humanoid robot codenamed Optimus, which it says will build on its work in AI and self-driving vehicles.

The robot will reportedly be equipped with the Tesla vehicle’s autopilot cameras, a screen for displaying information and a full-fledged self-driving computer. Musk hopes to have a working prototype of the robot by the end of this year.

In a recent tweet, Musk pointed out that “decentralized control” of the robots is critical to ensure they don’t go off the rails and turn on humans.

Last year, Musk said Tesla is arguably the greatest robotics company in the world because its vehicles are like “semi-intelligent robots on wheels. It makes sense to convert that AI-driven knowledge into a “humanoid form,” he added.
