Japanese multinational company Asahi Kasei announced it will present automotive industry solutions at CES 2023, ranging from raw materials and production technologies to the usage of recycled and recyclable materials, all of which are part of its mission to support the transition to electrified, autonomous and more sustainable mobility.   

Video of the Week: 

Karakuri, which is developing robotic kitchen automation for fast casual and quick service restaurants, has announced the launch of its new family of /FRYR automated fry lines. The high-precision frying solutions aim to save time and reduce waste while ensuring perfectly cooked fried food.

The /FRYR210 is the first model in the range of the automated fry lines, combining robotics and real-time data analysis to give restaurants with optimal fried food production of up to 130 lbs (60 kg) of french fries per hour. Simultaneously, the /FRYR210 improves food quality and consistency by ensuring the standard operating procedures are followed 100% of the time. THe system works with existing fry wells, extraction and fire suppression systems to spend less time in front of the fryer and more time on value-added, customer-focused tasks within the restaurant.

TeslaOptimus400x275Last week at a Tesla AI technology event, Elon Musk introduced multiple versions of Tesla’s Optimus humanoid robot. The event included a production model (prototype photo at left), which Elon Musk hopes to eventually sell in the millions as a personal assistant for under $20,000 each. 

Soon after, the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) posted an interesting list of questions from professional roboticists in industry and academia concerning key next steps in the development of the Tesla Optimus. These key questions will need to be answered as Tesla gears up to produce the Optimus humanoid robot for the mass market. Elon Musk, who has shown himself to be a master at technology innovation from rocket engine design to self-driving car neural networks, has admitted his team may be “barking up the wrong tree” in terms of some of the current technical approaches — showing a level of humility and steadfastness in his approach. Optimus is admittedly a work in progress for Tesla.
