The challenges automakers, and now Tesla, face with humanoid robots
Auto manufacturers and other types of industrial operations that have been attempting to modernize their facilities by using robots to do much of the physical work have met with mixed results. Now the innovative Tesla car company is planning to use its own new humanoid robots in its factories. Business and industry leaders will be watching to see the results. Fulton Schools Professor Heni Ben Amor, whose expertise includes artificial intelligence, human-robot interaction, robot vision, and automatic motor skill acquisition, says the big challenge in using robots in manufacturing so far is that their actual abilities are limited while the costs to produce and deploy them are exceptionally high. Amor is also quoted in a recent article in The Straits Times and an article in euronews about Tesla’s plans to make humanoid robots.
