ASIMO: The Humanoid Robot at Dubai Motor Show
It walked in 2005 and now ASIMO runs. Perhaps more importantly it continues to inspire us to believe in the power of dreams!
ASIMO, which stands for ‘Advanced Step in Innovative Mobility,' will be making its presence once again at the Dubai International Motor Show from November 10 to 14 at the Honda stand to encourage and inspire young students to study the sciences.
Although ASIMO is no stranger to UAE, having visited in 2005, this time new ASIMO will visit and showcase some of its advanced capabilities including running, walking, climbing and descending stairs, interacting with people and more. Each ASIMO show will offer visitors an opportunity to see Honda's latest advancement in the field of robotics research.
ASIMO was created with the sole purpose of duplicating complexities of human motion and genuinely helping people. ASIMO took more than two decades of persistent study, research, and trial and error before Honda engineers achieved their dream of creating an advanced humanoid robot.
Now, ASIMO has ability to move around with human-like agility and we dream that in future ASIMO will 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 wheelchair. ASIMO might also perform certain tasks that are dangerous to humans, such as fighting fires or cleaning up toxic spills.
To see the ASIMO show, please visit the Honda stand at Hall 2, Dubai International Convention & Exhibition Centre.
