ASIMO was at the Guangzhou International Convention and Exhibition Center November 21-28, 2005 for the 3rd and largest iteration of the local motor show, Auto Guangzhou 2005. This was covered on the Internet by SINA, one of the three largest portal sites in China.
Large crowds gathered at each of ASIMO's demonstrations, which were designed to showcase Honda's technical expertise while also promoting international friendship.
The exhibition extended over some 85,000 square meters, and included some 370 companies, making it the most successful Auto Guangzhou ever. The displays were separated into four categories: passenger cars; trucks and buses; parts; and accessories.
Excitement at the Honda display reached a peak every time ASIMO started a demonstration by coming down a flight of stairs saying, "Welcome everybody! My name is ASIMO," in Chinese.
The demonstrations went on to show ASIMO's extended capabilities, including a presentation of ASIMO's visual recognition system, with images captured by ASIMO's camera-eyes shown on the big screen for all to see. It was another very successful outing for ASIMO!
