The host of the Honda stand at the 2009 Geneva Motor Show will be the world’s most advanced humanoid robot, the new Asimo. This Asimo robot is the latest in a long line of robots from Honda which began with the E0 robot in 1986. It will be helping to demonstrate the Honda Insight’s abilities. Asimo has evolved over the years to enable it to run, recognize people and objects, climb stairs and even carry and deliver drinks. Asimo has become a symbol for Honda’s advanced non-automotive research and is the culmination of more than 20-years of continuous development. Honda’s dream is that one day Asimo will become so advanced that it can truly help people.


At Geneva Asimo will interact with a human host showing the versatility of the new Honda Insight. Asimo has proved to be hugely popular with crowds across the globe and has appeared at motor shows, science exhibitions and even at the New York Stock Exchange on Wall Street.
