ASIMO (2011 - )
The all-new ASIMO is now advanced from an "automatic machine" to an "autonomous machine" with the decision-making capability to determine its behavior in concert with its surroundings such as movements of people.
At the beginning of the development process, the following three factors were identified as necessary for a robot to perform as an autonomous machine.
The technologies required to realize these capabilities were developed;
With these capabilities, the all-new ASIMO takes another step closer to practical use in an environment where it coexists with people.
