Humanoid Robot

Honda is widely known as a major car manufacturer, but it is also an innovator of new robot technologies. The company's "humanoid robot research and development plan" seeks to create a highly mobile, intelligent robot with the potential to benefit society. After many years of work, considerable progress has been made, and this is described in detail on this site. An overview of the development of three prototypes -- the P1, P2, and P3 -- is given, and some specifications are provided for the later two. Visitors to the site can view movies of the robots in action, or examine the newest prototype, ASIMO, in 3D. ASIMO rang the opening bell of the New York Stock Exchange on February 14, 2002, and a news article of this story is presented on the site.
