Robot would stand around 5'8 inches tall and weight approximately 20 kilos. It has a weighing capacity of 20 kilos and it would be controlled through AI, the backbone of Tesla EV's.
Initially, Optimus would be programmed to do repeatable tasks and assist with its own manufacturing operations. It could help in solving the employment related issues.
