Evolution of ASIMO
As exemplified by P2 and P3, the two-legged walking technology developed by Honda represents a unique approach to the challenge of autonomous locomotion. Using the know-how gained from these prototypes, Honda started research and development on new technology for actual use. Representing the fruition of this pursuit, ASIMO was born on November 20, 2000.
ASIMO stands for Advanced Step in Innovative Mobility. It means advanced innovative mobility for a new era.
ASIMO was conceived to function in an actual human living environment in the near future.
It is easy to operate, has a convenient size and weight and can move freely within the human living environment, all with a people-friendly design.
