Honda launches new Asimo Robot

by Dhiram Shah

Honda Motor Co., Ltd. debuted a new ASIMO humanoid robot which features the ability to pursue key tasks in a real-life environment such as an office and an advanced level of physical capabilities. Compared to the previous model, the new ASIMO achieves the enhanced ability to act in sync with people. It has a running speed of 6 km/hr and walking speed of 2.7 km/hr which is quiet slow as a normal person walks at 5 – 6 km/hr. A couple of new features are added such ability to walk while holding a person’s hand, to carry objects using a cart, etc. Further, the development of a “total control system” enables Asimo to automatically perform the tasks of a receptionist or information guide and carry out delivery service.

The Asimo weighs 54kg and is 130 cms tall.
