Title: Humanoid Robot
Location: Torrance, United States
Fields of operation: Digital, Technology
We are delighted that Honda Motors humanoid robot ASIMO will join the DLD06. The development of a robot that can move like, interact with and be of assistance to humans is recognised as one of the great technological challenges of the 21st Century. ASIMO (standing for Advanced Step in Innovative MObility) is regarded by many as one of the most advanced bipedal robots in the world. In terms of ASIMO's movement, Honda has studied and used as its model the complex co-ordinated movements of the human body. ASIMO's proportions and joint positions resemble those of a human being and, in many respects, it possesses a range of movement comparable to that of humans. Utilising new advanced motion technology, ASIMO not only walks forwards and backwards but also turns sideways, climbs up and down stairs, and turns corners. As such, ASIMO is the closest robot yet to replicating the natural walking motion of humans. Question of the Hour: Is Asimo a "he", or "she", or an "it"?
