Honda reveals the all-new ASIMO humanoid robot

Article by Christian A., on November 9, 2011

An all-new ASIMO humanoid robot was recently introduced by Honda. It doesn’t have to be controlled by an operator to move. It makes use of world-first technology to improve its intelligence and so that it could adapt to situations. Honda took a further step in the use of the ASIMO in the office or at a public space.

In addition, Honda presented a new task-performing robot arm. The model was developed while it applied multi-joint and posture control technologies to ASIMO. This robot arm can be used in places that people will have difficulty accessing since it could be remotely controlled for its various tasks.

‘Honda Robotics’ is the new collective name that covers all of Honda’s robotic technologies and products like the ASIMO. Honda will not stop at developing and researching humanoid robots. It will concentrate on making use of the robotic technologies to mass-built products and putting them into practical use. Honda said that the ASIO went from being an automatic machine” to an “autonomous machine”.

When the development started, these three factors were recognized to be necessary for a robot to work as an autonomous machine. The first is High level balancing ability, which means that it keeps its posture by putting out its leg in an instant.

The External recognition capability observes the people’s movements through different multiple sensors. It also predicts the changes that may occur. Then there’s the ability to produce autonomous behavior. It gathers details and makes predictions based on these. It could decide what its next move will be without relying on an operator.
