Honda Automobiles: Honda’s ASIMO Demonstrated during FIRST® Championship for First Time

Posted on 28. Apr, 2011 by in Honda Canada

Honda’s ASIMO, a world’s many modernized humanoid robot, done a entrance during a FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) Championship now in St. Louis, Mo. ASIMO, that stands for Advanced Step in Innovative Mobility, is a perfection of some-more than dual decades of investigate and growth by Honda engineers.

Designed to someday support people in their homes, ASIMO is being used now to enthuse and enthuse immature students, like those concerned in a FIRST robotics programs, to cruise studies in math and science. The demonstrations prominence ASIMO’s singular capabilities including walking brazen and backward, using scarcely 4 mph, climbing stairs and more.

“Honda and FIRST share many of a same values, including moving students to pursue opportunities in science, record and engineering,” pronounced Erik Wedin, ASIMO North American plan leader. “We consider a tyro robotics foe is a ideal environment to share and showcase ASIMO’s capabilities.”

Honda is one of a sponsors of a FIRST Championship, where over 11,000 students from 29 countries will attend in 3 coexisting robotics competitions. As partial of a activities, Honda is conducting ASIMO demonstrations now and Fri., Apr 29 on a hour from 10 a.m. by 5 p.m., and on Sat., Apr 30 from 9 a.m. by noon. The demonstrations, that are giveaway and open to a public, are holding place in a Second Level Atrium of a America’s Center Convention Complex in downtown St. Louis.

ASIMO visited 17 U.S. states and 3 Canadian provinces on a North American debate from 2003 by 2005, though this is a initial time a humanoid drudge has been demonstrated in Missouri.

Honda engineers began building a humanoid drudge in 1986 for a purpose of someday assisting people in need. After years of investigate and development, they combined an modernized humanoid drudge means to duty in real-world environments. ASIMO done a U.S. entrance Feb. 14, 2002, when it rang a opening bell during a New York Stock Exchange, and a latest chronicle of ASIMO, that includes a ability to run, debuted in North America during a Consumer Electronics Show, Jan 2007, in Las Vegas. ASIMO is now commissioned in Disneyland’s Innoventions captivate where a Say ‘Hello’ to Honda’s ASIMO live proof takes place several times daily in a Honda ASIMO Theater. The module gives visitors a glance into a destiny when humanoid robots, such as ASIMO, will support humans in their homes. Learn some-more about ASIMO during

About Honda
As a association clinging to a enrichment of tellurian mobility, Honda’s innovative investigate and growth efforts during a past decade have yielded such different outcomes as humanoid robotics, walking support devices, HondaJet, fuel dungeon electric car technology, skinny film solar cells, increasing rice stand yields and organic nano-materials in further to a pattern and growth of automobiles, motorcycles and energy apparatus products. Based on a faith in a value of record to residence a needs of society, it is Honda’s goal to rise products that expect and prove a elaborating needs of a business while assembly society’s direct for cleaner, safer, some-more fit and tolerable means of travel and tellurian mobility.
