Elon Musk: Tesla's second-generation humanoid robot Optimus is expected to be designed later this year

Elon Musk stated on social media that Tesla's second-generation humanoid robot, Optimus, will have its design completed later this year. The design of this robot is unique, but specific details have not been disclosed. Tesla plans to initially use the robot in manufacturing plants, validate its practicality, and then begin sales. Musk mentioned that the Optimus robot will bring huge profits to Tesla and may potentially increase the company's market value to $25 trillion

According to the financial news app Zhitong Finance, Tesla (TSLA.US) CEO Elon Musk announced on the social platform X that the design of the company's second-generation humanoid robot Optimus will be completed later in 2024. Musk stated that the new design is "special," but did not disclose further details. Earlier this year, Musk mentioned that the humanoid robot is still in development but may be launched by the end of next year.

It is reported that the second-generation Optimus made its first appearance on December 13 last year, with a demonstration video posted on social platform X. On July 4, the second-generation Optimus officially appeared at the 2024 World Artificial Intelligence Conference (WAIC 2024). Reports indicate that Tesla officials introduced that the second-generation Optimus, in addition to walking upright, has increased its walking speed by 30%; its fingers have also "evolved" to not only perceive and touch but also handle tasks such as gripping eggs and moving heavy objects with ease.

Tesla previously stated that the second-generation Optimus will first be used in its manufacturing plants, and once its practicality is confirmed, the company will begin selling the robot. At last month's Tesla shareholder meeting, Musk mentioned that the Optimus robot will bring huge profits to the company, with over 1,000 or even thousands of Optimus robots working at Tesla starting next year. Musk further stated that the humanoid robot may at some point in the future increase the company's market value to $25 trillion
