Figure today announced a “commercial agreement” that will bring its first humanoid robot to a BMW manufacturing facility in South Carolina. BMW has not disclosed how many Figure 01 models it will deploy initially. Nor do we know precisely what jobs the robot will be tasked with when it starts work. Adcock alludes to Figure 01 being tasked with an initial set of jobs that require high dexterity. Figure 01 will very much be learning on the job, as well, refining its approach during real-world testing, much as we humans do.
