Kuala Lumpur, Nov 15 : The world's first-ever humanoid robot Asimo is showcasing its abilities in Malaysia during an ongoing road tour until Nov 30.
Honda Malaysia Sdn Bhd has brought in Asimo, an acronym for Advanced Step in Innovative Mobility, which is capable to grip objects and recognise people.
"Asimo is compact and lightweight, with advanced walking technology. It is easy to operate, people-friendly and designed to operate better in a real-world environment," the News Straits Times Online quoted Honda Malaysia's managing director and chief executive officer Atsushi Fujimoto, as saying.
The 1.3 metre tall robot created after 22 years of brainstorming would be able to help human beings in their daily life.
Fujimoto also said Honda would continue its efforts to create a more advance humanoid robot.
