Elon Musk said he would likely dispatch a humanoid robot model one year from now, named the “Tesla Bot”, which is intended to do “exhausting, monotonous and hazardous” work.
The very rich person CEO of the electric carmaker Tesla said the robot, which would be about 5ft 8in (1.7m) tall and weigh 125 pounds (56kg), would have the option to deal with assignments like joining bolts to vehicles with a spanner or getting food at stores.
Talking at Tesla’s AI Day occasion, Musk said the robot could have “significant ramifications for the economy” by connecting holes the labor force made by work deficiencies. He said it was significant that the new machine was not “very costly”.
He portrayed it as an augmentation of Tesla’s work on self-driving vehicles, and the robot would utilize a similar microchip and route framework with eight cameras.
However, Musk gave no sign of having gained substantial headway on really building such a machine.

However, the inconvenient, substantial machines they have exhibited look similar to the smooth plans Musk asserted Tesla could construct.
The declaration by Musk, who has an affinity for advertising new item dispatches, comes in the midst of an examination concerning the security of Tesla’s full self-driving software.On Monday, the US government opened an examination concerning Tesla’s driver-help framework, known as Autopilot, after a progression of impacts with left crisis vehicles.
