February 13, 2009 Those of you who (like us) have followed the development of Honda's ASIMO humanoid robot might be interested in a new "Inside ASIMO" feature now available on the bipedal bot's website. The feature uses a 3D computer-generated model to provide an interactive look at ASIMO's form, function, movement and intelligence capabilities, outlining the technology that enables the robot to, among other things, climb stairs, run, avoid obstacles, recognize faces and distinguish sounds.

ASIMO, short for Advanced Step in Innovative Mobility, has a development history that stretches back more that two decades and will be deployed in the domestic robot market to assist the elderly and disabled, a market that's expected to flourish in coming years.

Visit Inside ASIMO or see our ASIMO page for further reading.
