Workers at Tesla Giga in Texas witnessed one of their colleagues being attacked by a robot. The engineer responsible for programming the software for Tesla’s robots became the victim of this attack. The robot used its metal claws to pin the man to the ground, causing severe injuries and leaving a trail of blood on the factory floor.

This incident has not only unsettled Gigafactory employees but also raised concerns among regulators. A report submitted to regulators highlighted worries about the safety of using automated robots in workplaces. Questions have been raised about the company’s compliance with safety agreements and practices in its factories.

Additionally, there are allegations that Tesla might be intentionally underreporting injuries. An attorney representing Giga workers in Texas suggests that the number of reported injuries might be lower than the actual count. This pertains not only to the robot incident but also to the death of a construction worker in 2021.

In Tesla’s official 2021 compliance report, a robot attack is mentioned, but the information provided is insufficient. Worker attorneys insist on a comprehensive review of injury reports to accurately assess the risks faced by workers at the Texas Gigafactory.

The 2022 data further emphasizes safety concerns at Tesla’s Texas plant, revealing a high injury rate surpassing the auto industry average.

In 2022, Tesla CEO Elon Musk unveiled two humanoid robot prototypes: Bumble C and Optimus. Bumble C demonstrated the ability to walk without restraints and exhibited careful movements.

Optimus, another robot, is a stationary prototype resembling a modern knight. It captivated the audience with a wave of its arm and a dance move. Musk described Optimus as a near-production design, emphasizing its potential to assist millions of people with useful tasks.

Although Optimus can walk, self-calibrate its limbs, pick up objects, and sense its environment, Tesla acknowledges it’s still far from being fully functional.

Musk envisions Optimus becoming a universal assistant in factories and homes, performing tasks like mowing lawns and washing dishes.
