ASIMO is humanoid robot developed
by Honda in 2000.
It is the 4th man like humanoid robot.
ASIMO was created to be a helper to
people. ASIMO’s height of four feet
make it the perfect size for helping
around the house , or to assist a person
confined to a bed or a wheelchair.
ASIMO’s size allow it to look directly at
an adult sitting in a chair or sitting up
Honda’s development of the humanoid begun fin
The world first self regulating, bipedal (two-
legged) humanoid robot named P2 , was
completed by Honda in December 1996.
After P2, P3 the first completely independent
bipedal humanoid walking robot arrived in
ASIMO was completedOctober 31 , 2000 and
remains the most advanced humanoid robot ever
Weight: 52 kilograms
Running Speed: 6 km/h
Walking speed: 2.7 km/h
Walking speed while carrying objects: 1.6 km/h
Height: 130 cm
Width: 45 cm
Depth: 44 cm
Continuous operating time: 40 min – 1 hr.
ASIMO is powered by 40V nickel metal hydrate battery.
ASIMO can operate for approximately 30 minutes on a
Four hour are required to completely rechargeASIMO’s
battery. ASIMO can automatically find its charging
station and connect his battery to that machine for
ASIMO is equipped with two cameras in its head.
These camera “eyes” allow ASIMO and its operator to view
the surrounding environment.
These camera allow ASIMO to independently recognize
unique faces that have been stored in its memory and to
accurately judge distance from objects.
ASIMO has also a camera on its torso used to view markers
on the floor and on stairs.
ASIMO is equipped with 26 separate servomotors.
ASIMO walk’s by “prediction movement control ” , that is
it predict the next move and shifting the center of gravity
Unlike earlier version called P3 , which had to stop
temporarily between changes of directions, ASIMO
smoothly change the direction
and walk smoothly.
ASIMO is very stable and smooth even
when it move suddenly.
Stored walking patterns for start/acceleration , steady
speed, deceleration , stopping and turning are combined
to achieve smooth walking.
ASIMO turns smoothly without pausing.
Walking patterns are generated in real
time , and foot placement locations and
turning are carried out while walking
smoothly in any direction.
ASIMO can walk on the stairs easily , it
can navigate to different direction easily.
Moreover it can easily balance on a single
With 2000's ASIMO model Honda
added many features, labeled
"Intelligence Technology", that
enable ASIMO to interact better with
humans. These features fall under 5
1. Recognition of moving objects
2. Posture/gesture recognition
3. Environment recognition
4. Sound recognition
5. Face recognition.
ASIMO can detect movement of multiple
objects, assessing distance and direction
using the visual info. captured by the camera.
Featured served by this application are
Follow the movements of people
Follow a person
Yield to pedestrians in its path.
Greet a person when he or she approaches.
Positioning and movement of a hand,
recognizing postures and gestures.
Can react and be directed to both voice
commands and natural movements of human
Recognize when a handshake is offered.
A person waving at it.
ASIMO can recognize the objects and
terrain of his environment and act in a way
that is safe for both himself and nearby
Recognizing potential hazards such as stairs.
Avoid hitting humans and other moving
ASIMO can distinguish between voices and
He can respond to his name, face people
when being spoken to, and recognize
sudden, unusual sounds such as that of a
falling object or a collision, and face in that
ASIMO has the ability to
recognize faces, even when
ASIMO or the human being is
It can individually recognize
approximately 10 different
faces. Once they are registered
it can address them by name.
