Is it really ten years since we were first introduced to ASIMO and marvelled at his ability to move almost like a human, even go up and down stairs? To mark the date (31st October) Honda has created 10th Anniversary websites with new photos, videos about the story of its creation. Smartphone apps featuring ASIMO and other Honda robots as characters that the user can interact with will also be available soon.

Honda's research into humanoid robotics started almost a quarter of a century ago and on 31st October 2000, ASIMO was created. Its European unveiling was at the Technical University of Darmstadt in June 2003 and since then ASIMO has visited science museums around Europe, met royalty and heads of state and even has visited the European Parliament.

ASIMO is part of Honda's program of research and development into robotics and human mobility. The goal of the project is to create a truly usable humanoid robot that will be able to help people in their everyday lives. Honda is now focusing its research on the development of intelligence as well as improving the understanding about the ideal interaction and relationship between people and humanoid robots.
