Honda humanoid robot Asimo joins U3-X personal mobility device for the first time in Europe

Visitors to the Honda stand at Moscow International Automobile Salon will be treated to one of the largest showcases of Honda products and models ever shown in the country. This includes the entire line up of cars currently available in Russia, one concept (the Crosstour) and two brand new models, including the new CR-V, making its debut in the region. It was a first for Asimo too, being joined on stage by the innovative U3-X personal mobility device for the first time in Europe. Asimo and the U3-X are both part of Honda Robotics, Honda’s collective name for all of its robotics technologies and product applications created through its research and development of humanoid robots.

Huge crowds are expected to watch Asimo and the U3-X, which allows the rider to control the speed of travel and move in any direction simply by shifting their weight. The event is taking place in the International Exhibition Centre Crocus Expo in Moscow, and is open to the general public from the 29th August for twelve days.
