Correct Answer : Option (B) - Elon Musk
On Friday(30th Sep 2022), Tesla CEO Elon Musk revealed a prototype of a humanoid "Optimus" robot that shares some Artificial Intelligence (AI) software and sensors with its cars' Autopilot driver assistance features.
Optimus was revealed at Tesla AI Day 2022, an event which aimed to demonstrate how far the company's autonomous robot and vehicle research has come.
According to media reports, the event gave the first look of Optimus, strolling around the stage, updates on new self-driving software and also a first look at the Dojo hardware powering Tesla's AI research.
According to Elon Musk, this humanoid prototype can do more than what was shown live. However, it first operated without a tether during the Tesla AI Day event. Musk also claimed that the difference between Tesla's humanoid and other very impressive humanoid robot demonstrations is that Tesla's Optimus is made for mass production in the "millions" of units and to be very capable.
About Optimus robot's prototype :
* After much waiting, the Optimus was finally presented in functional form. It has a 2.3kWh battery, weighs 73 kg, it walks about and waves using external actuators.
* The autopilot team at Tesla described how far they have gone with fully autonomous driving, which has increased from 2,000 Tesla drivers to 160,000 this year in its beta testing.
Elon Musk suggested a potential worldwide expansion, despite the fact that it is presently only accessible in the US and Canada..Source : Business Standard
