Honda Releases New ASIMO Robot: Hops on One Leg, Runs 9 km/h

Honda unveiled an all-new ASIMO humanoid robot newly equipped with autonomous behavior control technology. The all-new ASIMO can now continue moving without being controlled by an operator. With significantly improved intelligence and the physical ability to adapt to situations, ASIMO took another step closer to practical use in an office or a public space where many people come and go.

The combination of strengthened legs, an expanded range of leg movement and a newly developed control technology that enables ASIMO to change landing positions in the middle of a motion has enabled ASIMO to walk, run, run backward, hop on one leg or on two legs continuously.

Cool!

I hear they’re working on an Arduino-powered version next — they’re going to call it ASIMO Banzi (not really)
