During the Artificial Intelligence Event held at Tesla’s Palo Alto headquarters, Elon Musk walked out in a human Tesla Bot uniform and said: “Tesla Bot will be real.”

He detailed some of the tasks that the robot could complete, including grocery, runs, picking up household objects, and other everyday commands.

A job opening on the Tesla website says, “Develop the next generation of automation, including a general purpose, bi-pedal, humanoid robot capable of performing tasks that are unsafe, repetitive or boring.”

“We’re seeking mechanical, electrical, controls and software engineers to help us leverage our AI expertise beyond our vehicle fleet.”

The robot will be 5 feet 8 inches tall and 125 pounds. It will include a screen on the face of the bot to display helpful information. Additionally, it will have human-level hands.

The extremities operate using 40 electromechanical actuators, with two feet and force feedback sensing for balance and agility. Musk joked that it might be able to run up to 5 MPH.

The Tesla Bot will also utilize some of the company’s AI devices operational on the company’s vehicles. Autopilot cameras will essentially act as the vision for the Tesla Bot, while a Full Self-Driving computer will essentially function as the internal organs of the robot, helping it to operate and function as a productive member of the household.

It will utilize multi-camera video neural networks, identical to what was detailed during the AI Event. Additionally, Neural Net planning, labeling, simulation, and tools will also be used to help the Tesla Bot operate effectively and efficiently while accurately performing tasks.

Elon Musk said, “Things that I think are very hard about having a useful humanoid robot is ‘Can it navigate through the world without being explicitly trained?’ Without explicit line-by-line instructions.”

“Can you talk to it and say ‘Pick up that bolt, attach it to the car with that wrench. It should be able to do that.”
