Tesla Bot is a developing project still with limited available specifications. And similar to ongoing concepts and prototypes, drastic changes in these specifications may occur. All mentioned information is subject to changes as the project progresses, so the Optimus prototype may not resemble the model shown.

Problem / Solution

The industry has witnessed the significance of robotics in recent times, leading to more development in artificial intelligence and AI robot creation. The mix of robotics and AI makes lives easier, allowing robots to navigate independently, decide on their own, and adapt to varying conditions. AI robots emerge in the military, medical, industrial, and even entertainment industries, prompting the need for more navigation methods, human interaction, and complicated semantics in different circumstances.

Tesla Bot envisions the next generation of automation. It eyes building a bipedal humanoid robot that can perform dangerous, repetitive, and boring tasks. Tesla Bots will relieve humans of unsafe duties by providing manufacturing assistance through automation in logistics. It will be a household robot that will aid millions of people, from picking up groceries to cooking and to caring for elderlies.


The Tesla Bot is also known as the Optimus. Its humanoid design will allow it to adapt easier to human society. Standing at 5 ft 8 in (173 cm) and weighing 160 lbs (73 kg), it will have a carrying capacity of 45 lbs (20 kg) and can lift 150 lbs (68 kg) off the ground.

Its sleek shell design, featuring an arm-extend lift of 10 lbs (4.5 kg), will be built using lightweight materials. It will have 2 axis feet for balancing and feature force feedback sensing. Tesla Bit will have 28 structural actuators.

Tesla Bot will carry similar tools as Tesla cars, including autopilot cameras, screen displays, and self-driving computers. It will have eight autopilot cameras in the head for sensing the environment. The face will have an interactive screen allowing communication and information display. This info display will probably be a replacement for speaking.

The chest will house the full self-driving (FSD) powering Tesla Bot's every move. Its operation under Tesla's Full Self-Driving computer will power the android. The robot will also incorporate the same interface as current Tesla models. Some tools include Tesla's developing advanced AI driver-assistance system used in cars, multi-cam video neural networks, neural net planning, and auto-labeling.


As safety is of tantamount importance, the robot will have a localized chip available for remote updating. And to alleviate the fear of a dystopian situation, Tesla Bot will comply when instructed to stop whatever activity it is doing.
