    Speaking at Tesla's AI Day, founder Elon Musk revealed the Tesla Bot, a humanoid robot running on artificial intelligence used by Tesla's autonomous vehicles. "It makes sense to put that onto humanoid form," Musk said.

    Musk revealed few details about the Slenderman-looking Tesla Bot outside of a few PowerPoint slides but reiterated some of his beliefs about human labor.

    "They can use all of the same tools that we use in the car," Musk noted, suggesting the robot could be told to "go to the store and get ... the following groceries."

    A prototype would likely be ready next year, Musk said.

    watched it in full. if there were any doubts on whether tesla will be able to pull off a L5 FSD system then that speculation should be put to rest now. They still have a long ways to go, but to a semi-lame like myself, the infrastructure seems sound and that they're MILES ahead of the competition. that's not to say that there won't end up being more than one way to get to L5, but what they announced today is pretty wild.

    the acquisition def seems like an attempt to integrate bd's environment-learning foundation into their FSD tech, which is likely a pretty smart move after seeing the depths of what tesla's been putting together to make fsd a real thing. there's a reason why we're still not anywhere near L5, despite the claims of many companies to be able to get there a few years ago. i've kept up with the progression of bd's robots throughout the years, but not their underlying technology

    wiki copy/paste. in a nutshell, L5 = no steering wheel, no interventions:

    Levels of driving automation
    In SAE's automation level definitions, "driving mode" means "a type of driving scenario with characteristic dynamic driving task requirements (e.g., expressway merging, high speed cruising, low speed traffic jam, closed-campus operations, etc.)"

    • Level 0: The automated system issues warnings and may momentarily intervene but has no sustained vehicle control.
    • Level 1 ("hands on"): The driver and the automated system share control of the vehicle. Examples are systems where the driver controls steering and the automated system controls engine power to maintain a set speed (Cruise Control) or engine and brake power to maintain and vary speed (Adaptive Cruise Control or ACC); and Parking Assistance, where steering is automated while speed is under manual control. The driver must be ready to retake full control at any time. Lane Keeping Assistance (LKA) Type II is a further example of Level 1 self-driving. Automatic emergency braking which alerts the driver to a crash and permits full braking capacity is also a Level 1 feature, according to Autopilot Review magazine.[77]
    • Level 2 ("hands off"): The automated system takes full control of the vehicle: accelerating, braking, and steering. The driver must monitor the driving and be prepared to intervene immediately at any time if the automated system fails to respond properly. The shorthand "hands off" is not meant to be taken literally – contact between hand and wheel is often mandatory during SAE 2 driving, to confirm that the driver is ready to intervene. The eyes of the driver might be monitored by cameras to confirm that the driver is keeping their attention to traffic. A common example is adaptive cruise control which also utilizes lane keeping assist technology so that the driver simply monitors the vehicle, such as "Super-Cruise" in the Cadillac CT6 by General Motors.[78]
    • Level 3 ("eyes off"): The driver can safely turn their attention away from the driving tasks, e.g. the driver can text or watch a movie. The vehicle will handle situations that call for an immediate response, like emergency braking. The driver must still be prepared to intervene within some limited time, specified by the manufacturer, when called upon by the vehicle to do so. You can think of the automated system as a co-driver that will alert you in an orderly fashion when it is your turn to drive. An example would be a Traffic Jam Chauffeur,[79] another example would be a car satisfying the international Automated Lane Keeping System (ALKS) regulations.[80]
    • Level 4 ("mind off"): As level 3, but no driver attention is ever required for safety, e.g. the driver may safely go to sleep or leave the driver's seat. However, self-driving is supported only in limited spatial areas (geofenced) or under special circumstances. Outside of these areas or circumstances, the vehicle must be able to safely abort the trip, e.g. slow down and park the car, if the driver does not retake control. An example would be a robotic taxi or a robotic delivery service that covers selected locations in an area, at a specific time and quantities.
    • Level 5 ("steering wheel optional"): No human intervention is required at all. An example would be a robotic vehicle that works on all kinds of surfaces, all over the world, all year around, in all weather conditions.
    In the formal SAE definition below, an important transition is from SAE Level 2 to SAE Level 3 in which the human driver is no longer expected to monitor the environment continuously. At SAE 3, the human driver still has responsibility to intervene when asked to do so by the automated system. At SAE 4 the human driver is always relieved of that responsibility and at SAE 5 the automated system will never need to ask for an intervention.

    intrastin, L4 seems pretty OP

    tesla admitted to only being at L2 in march and they’re saying they’ll be at L5 before the end of the year that’s insane

    L5 by end of year? where'd you hear that? i don't foresee that happening for another 3-10 years.

    It'll go this route eventually. Can't wait for it, to be honest.

    They say it "won't fight back" but we'll see how it acts after I throw some black-on-black air forces on it and make it listen to nonstop NBA YoungBoy and Young Dolph :emoji_smiling_imp:

    he makes a lot of false timeline promises. they've had to re-write their code from the ground-up a couple times now, recently removed radar, etc.

    They're introducing Dojo (codename "Optimus") next year, which is a super friggin computer that was designed fully in-house, to identify ("label") objects, analyze video data & driving scenarios, create simulations, etc. to eventually recursively learn *all* possible scenarios on the road. They demonstrated examples during the presentation last night as wild as 2 people and a puppy going for a jog in the middle lane of a highway -- they need to account for all of those, one-off scenarios, before ever becoming a true L5 implementation. even something as simple as someone on the side of the road holding up a STOP sign will currently cause the vehicle to stop -- they'll need to account for those situations as well by detecting a human, that it's a piece of paper, that the human's arms are attached to it, etc...the sheer processing power and level of depth that comes with training a network like that is unlike much of anything that's been done before on any scale/industry.

    at earliest, I'd say that L3 will be achieved by end of next year, but that's assuming they get Dojo off the ground early 2022 and that it proves to be as much of a powerhouse as they're currently testing. A more conservative estimate would be end of 2023. Achieving the requirements for L4 & L5 are really unpredictable until their supercomputer really digs its teeth in.

    Also keep in mind that a lot of this will be bottlenecked due to regulations and.or them not wanting to claim L3+. Someone will have to fact check this one, but I believe that once you hit L3, then legal onus is on *the manufacturer (Tesla)* when accidents occur. That gives the manufacturer very little incentive to claim L3 until they're really at L4+. Keep the onus on the driver for as long as you can as to avoid liabilities.

    They plugged needing new AI staff several times last night -- they appear to have a sound team, if you heard any of them speak last night, but as far as L5 achievement goes, they're still in their learning to crawl stage.
