Tesla Optimus’ official Twitter account uploaded a new video: This humanoid robot has evolved and is now able to classify objects relying only on vision. Completed yoga poses. In this regard, Elon Musk seemed unable to conceal his excitement and said bluntly in the comment area: Progress.
The video content shows that the Optimus humanoid robot uses end-to-end neural network control similar to Tesla’s autonomous driving technology FSD 12: video input, control output, and thereby control the movement of each component and joint.
Optimus completed a simple task of sorting objects by color, placing building blocks of different colors into boxes of corresponding colors. Its movements and reactions also appear to be very sensitive, and it can quickly adjust its plan and continue to complete the task in the face of “difficulties” from testers.
Note: Optimus is an intelligent robot released by Tesla in August 2021. Its design goal is to be able to perform some dangerous or boring tasks for humans, such as carrying heavy objects, purchasing groceries, etc.
Optimus is 1.8 meters tall, weighs 57 kilograms, has a top speed of 8 kilometers per hour, and is equipped with neural network and computer vision technology independently developed by Tesla.
In Tesla’s 2023 second quarter earnings call in July this year, Elon Musk said that he believed only 5-6 robots had been produced so far. “The number is a little small, but it will increase every month in the future. And there are so many interesting things about the Optimus robot.”
