ASIMO continues to grow up.
ASIMO has come a long way since Honda started development almost 2 decades ago. There are several videos demonstrations on the Web (two are shown on CHIRS TV2).
The videos show how ASIMO can walk and run while turning as well as dynamically balance itself in response to external forces, i.e., a person pushing or pulling ASIMO. ASIMO is also shown kicking a ball and walking up and down a flight of stairs.
Honda’s future plans for this technology include developing it as a helper robot for the elderly including the ability to hand objects such as medication to them
