    Carmaker Tesla is set to release a prototype of its humanoid robot this year, according to CEO Elon Musk. The unveiling of the Optimus is scheduled for Sept. 30 on the company's "AI Day," which is the second of its kind. Tesla's conference on all things artificial intelligence was delayed by over a month in order for the prototype of the robot to be ready on time. WATCH: BURNING TESLA TAKES 4,500 GALLONS OF WATER TO EXTINGUISH Optimus will have a carrying capacity of 45 pounds and a dead lift capacity of 150 pounds — all while weighing 125 pounds at 5'8" and walking at a speed of 5 miles per hour. Musk hopes it will be the robotic assistant for most chores. Tesla AI Day pushed to Sept 30, as we may have an Optimus prototype working by then— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) June 3, 2022 “We have these sort of AI Day events to just emphasize that Tesla is a lot more than a car company and that we are, in my view, the...
    "To be honest, I have not actually thought about it from the companionship standpoint, but [Optimus] would end up being ... it could be actually a very good companion," Musk said. Elon Musk and Lex Fridman discuss Tesla Bot youtu.be Citing the ability of Optimus to develop a "unique" personality like those of beloved "Star Wars" droids R2-D2 and C-3P0, Musk says that Optimus "could evolve to match" its "owner or ... whatever you want to call it." In the interview, Musk and Fridman both appear excited about the prospect of a robot developing a "personality" engineered to suit or complement a real person, and both also express misgivings about calling such a real person the "owner" of the robot, perhaps signaling parity between human beings and manufactured robots. "Owner seems like the wrong word," Musk mused. Though in the past Musk has cautioned against the "scary outcomes" of autonomous, Terminator-like robots, he admitted in the Fridman interview that he hadn't spent much time considering the long-term sociological implications of Optimus. "Normally, I do try to...

    New York (CNN Business)A Japanese company has built a four-legged, rolling robot that looks vaguely like a centaur — boasting two arms with claw-like hands, an arachnid-esque abdomen and two bulging cameras for eyes — and is designed to transverse the surface of the moon.The robot, called the R1, was designed and built by GITAI in partnership with the Japanese space agency, JAXA. A recent test run, carried out at a JAXA facility that mimics lunar dirt, shows the robot roving around the bumpy terrain on its four wheels, unpacking a series of parts using clamp-like hands and cinching together the base structure for a solar panel.The R1 is one of several robots that GITAI has developed for various purposes. The company's goal is to take its tech to the actual lunar surface sometime in the mid-2020s, according to its website. The robot also ran through a few additional exercises meant to test how well it can traverse bumpy terrain, hills and potentially collect a lunar regolith sample. The footage, which is sped up to 15x normal speed — giving...
    A new prototype robot uses Wi-Fi signals to improve its ability to navigate indoors. The prototype, built by researchers from the University of California, incorporated Wi-Fi with cameras in an attempt to improve the robot's ability to see. This fix would allow the robot to counter the shortfalls of most robots' camera lenses and light detection and ranging sensors, or LiDARs. These tools are often limited by low-light environments due to them making distance determinations extremely difficult. "We are surrounded by wireless signals almost everywhere we go," said project leader Professor Dinesh Bharadia, according to Science Daily. "The beauty of this work is that we can use these everyday signals to do indoor localization and mapping with robots." BUZZ OFF: SOME CICADA STRAGGLERS TO ARRIVE A YEAR LATE "Using Wi-Fi, we have built a new kind of sensing modality that fills in the gaps left behind by today's light-based sensors, and it can enable robots to navigate in scenarios where they currently cannot," said study author Aditya Arun. The prototype relied on off-the-shelf parts and...
    Elon Musk presented his first humanoid robot in a short live presentation, which they named the Tesla Pot. Source: Smart Life / Tesla Tesla Boat The prototype Ilona mask will be ready by the end of the summer of 2022, according to the announcement, and it will be people-friendly – you can definitely escape from that, said the Tesla founder. The Tesla Bot is designed to do things that people generally do mechanically. The robot is as tall as the average person, it can lift almost 70 kilograms from one place, carry 20 kilograms or add a load of up to 4.5 kilograms with one hand. The Tesla Pat weighs 56 kilograms and can go up to 8km / h. The robot is designed to participate in complex tasks based on the robot’s performance, and is dangerous to humans – contaminated and polluted zones, fire zones, flood zones and the like.

    In this article TSLAElon Musk Tesla BotTesla will build a humanoid robot called Tesla Bot, CEO Elon Musk said on Thursday. "We're also good at sensors and batteries and we'll probably have a prototype next year that looks like this," Musk said, shortly after an actor in a body suit designed to look like the Tesla robot gyrated wildly on stage. He remarked that the actor was not a real robot, but "the Tesla Bot will be real." The announcement was made as part of AI Day, a series of tech talks hosted by Tesla in California to recruit machine learning talent.  The Tesla Bot is an example of Musk's showmanship, in which he announces that Tesla is working on exciting products scheduled for years into the future to energize backers including employees, customers, and investors. Often, those announcements don't happen on the timeline predicted. For instance, at an 'Autonomy Day" event in Apr. 2019, Musk said the company would have 1 million autonomous "robotaxis" on the road in 2020. Those robotaxis are nowhere to be seen. In October 2016,...
    A Chinese space mining start-up launched into low Earth orbit on Tuesday a robot prototype that can scoop up debris left behind by other spacecraft with a big net. The NEO-01, which will also peer into deep space to observe small celestial bodies, was launched on the government’s Long March 6 rocket along with a handful of satellites, state-run Xinhua news agency reported. The 30kg robot developed by Shenzhen-based Origin Space will pave the way for future technologies capable of mining on asteroids, according to the company. Since the establishment of the world’s first asteroid mining company Planetary Resources in 2009, more than a dozen firms across the world have entered the fledging sector, including 3D Systems of the United States and Japan’s Astroscale. This image provided by the European Space Agency shows an artist impression of catalogued objects in low-Earth orbit viewed over the Equator. AP Unlike Astroscale’s technology, which uses magnets to gather up space junk, NEO-01 will use a net to capture debris and then burn it with its electric propulsion system, according to a report on the...
    Amazon appears to have reached the “late-prototype stage” in the creation of its secretive home robot codenamed Vesta, claims a new report from Insider. The device has been under development for around four years and now has more than 800 employees working on it, says the publication. If the robot launches, it will be one of Amazon’s biggest and most ambitious new products, in the mold of the Echo, Kindle, and Fire Phone. Indeed, it’s comparisons to the latter device, Amazon’s failed smartphone project, that seems to be concerning some of those involved in Vesta’s development. “People are very skeptical — we’re worried it could turn into another Fire Phone,” one of six anonymous sources cited by Insider as “directly involved in the project” told the publication. Vesta is reported to have a built-in screen like some of Amazon’s recent Alexa devices. Photo by Dan Seifert / The News Brig As with any unannounced device of this scale, there is an abundance of unanswered questions and uncertain details. The basic premise, though,...
    Volkswagen has unveiled a prototype of its mobile charging robot that wheels over to electric vehicles and refills them with power. The fully autonomous machine is designed for parking areas, such as underground garages, and is set to be rolled out sometime next year. The robot tows a battery pack to a parked vehicle, which it prompts to open the charging socket flap, then connects the plug and decouples once charging is complete. The prototype is inspired by a 2019 proof-of-concept and is fitted with large blinking eyes and R2-D2 noises. Volkswagen has unveiled a prototype of its mobile charging robot that wheels over to electric vehicles and refills them with power Thomas Schmall, CEO of Volkswagen Group Components, said: 'A ubiquitous charging infrastructure is, and remains, a key factor in the success of electric mobility.' 'Our charging robot is just one of several approaches, but is undoubtedly one of the most visionary.' RELATED ARTICLES Previous 1 Next Rumoured 'Apple Car' launch 'is likely pushed back until at...

    It’s now clearer how VW’s prototype EV charging robot will work in practice. VW has offered its first real-world glimpse of the mobile charger bot in action. It’s not just helpful for charging EVs away from dedicated spaces, it’s cute — the prototype has a “face” that lights up as it grabs the battery trailer and plugs into your car. We wouldn’t expect to hear the R2-D2-like beeps from the video below, but the robot should otherwise be friendly (or at least, not so creepy) as it tops up your ride. The robot works autonomously and starts up either using an app or through communication with the car itself. You don’t have to open the flap or tell the robot to disconnect. And don’t worry about the robot being busy — it leaves the battery trailer at the car so that it’s free to charge other vehicles in the meantime. The charging system is clearly designed with VW models like the ID.4 in mind, although it should work with other EVs.
