With the goal of assisting people with limited mobility, Honda’s scientists and engineers spent two decades developing a robot that would become ASIMO.


Today, ASIMO is the world’s most advanced humanoid robot with ability to walk, run, climb stairs and carry objects. ASIMO can even respond to voice commands and recognize faces. In the future, Honda hope that SIMO will be able to assist people with limited mobility or perform tasks dangerous to humans.
