Honda ASIMO (Video Updates)

Honda ASIMO
Japanese car manufacturer Honda’s ASIMO is certainly one of the most advanced bipedal humanoid robot in the world. Designed to work in human environments, it has demonstrated many maneuvering capabilities that are unprecedented in other robots: walking, side-stepping, running, up and down stairs etc..

Design & Concepts

Honda engineers created ASIMO with 34 Degrees of Freedom that help it walk and perform tasks much like a human. One Degree of Freedom is the ability to move right and left or up and down. These degrees of freedom act much like human joints for optimum movement and flexibility. Lightweight materials, like a magnesium alloy structure, combined with powerful computers and 34 servo motors throughout its body help ASIMO move smoothly with ease.

ASIMO is designed to operate in the real world, where people need to reach for things, pick things up, navigate along floors, sidewalks, and even climb stairs. ASIMO’s abilities to run, walk smoothly, climb stairs, communicate, and recognize people’s voices and faces will enable ASIMO to easily function in our world and truly assist humans.
