Optimus, also known as Tesla Bot, is a humanoid robot designed by Tesla. The robot is designed to perform tasks that humans may find dangerous, tedious, or boring. For example, Optimus could maneuver through supermarket aisles, carry groceries, or fix a leaky faucet. Tesla CEO Elon Musk announced Optimus at the company's Artificial Intelligence (AI) Day event in August 2021. He said that Tesla would likely build a prototype by 2022. The prototype was unveiled at the company's AI Day in September 2022. Musk said that Optimus will be mass produced and cost less than a car to purchase. Optimus is 5'8" tall and weighs 125 pounds. It can walk at a maximum of 5 MPH, carry 45 pounds, and dead lift 150. Optimus uses systems developed for the self-driving Autopilot systems in Tesla's electric cars to sense the world around it, map it, and navigate it.
