What do we use Robots for?
ASIMO by Honda
He can walk 2 mph
He is 119 lbs
He is 4'3" Tall
World's Most Advanced Humanoid Robot
His size makes it the perfect size for helping around the house, or to assist a person confined to a bed or a wheelchair. ASIMO’s size also allows it to look directly at an adult sitting in a chair or sitting up in bed.
1) Lightweight and compact size
2) Advanced, flexible walking technology
3) Expansive range of arm movement
4) Simplified operation
5) People-friendly design
Created to be a helper to people
• ASIMO is controlled by a laptop
computer or by a portable computer
controller unit through a wireless
network system. This permits more
direct and flexible operation. A single
operator can easily and fully control
• ASIMO can comprehend and carry out
tasks based on simple voice commands
given in English that have been
preprogrammed into its onboard
memory. The number of commands
that can be programmed is basically
unlimited. Individual voices can also be
registered to increase the performance
of the voice recognition function.
• ASIMO is powered by a 40V nickel metal hydride battery.
• ASIMO can operate for approximately 30 minutes on a single battery.
• Four hours are required to completely recharge ASIMO’s battery, though the
battery can be easily changed so ASIMO can continue to operate on a
• At around 17 pounds ASIMO’s battery is its single heaviest part

In 1986, Honda engineers set out to create a walking robot. Early models (E1, E2, E3) focused on developing legs that could simulate the walk of a human. The next series of models (E4, E5, E6) were focused on walk stabilization and stair climbing. Next, a head, body and arms were added to the robot to improve balance and add functionality. Honda’s first humanoid robot, P1 was rather rugged at 6’ 2” tall, and 386 lbs. P2 improved with a more friendly design, improved walking, stair climbing/descending, and wireless automatic movements. The P3 model was even more compact, standing 5’ 2” tall and weighing 287 lbs.
ASIMO is the culmination of two decades of humanoid robotics research by Honda engineers. ASIMO can run, walk on uneven slopes and surfaces, turn smoothly, climb stairs, and reach for and grasp objects. ASIMO can also comprehend and respond to simple voice commands. ASIMO has the ability to recognize the face of a select group of individuals. Using its camera eyes, ASIMO can map its environment and register stationary objects. ASIMO can also avoid moving obstacles as it moves through its environment.
As development continues on ASIMO, today Honda demonstrates ASIMO around the world to encourage and inspire young students to study the sciences. And in the future, ASIMO may serve as another set of eyes, ears, hands and legs for all kinds of people in need. Someday ASIMO might help with important tasks like assisting the elderly or a person confined to a bed or a wheelchair. ASIMO might also perform certain tasks that are dangerous to humans, such as fighting fires or cleaning up toxic spills.
