Demonstration Testing of ASIMO, an Autonomous Explaining Robot <Venue: Miraikan>

Honda Motor Co., Ltd. will conduct 2nd demonstration testing of ASIMO, following the 1st test held on 2 July to 3 August 2013 at Miraikan, to verify the ability of the humanoid robot to autonomously explain its features while interacting with people. Working toward the practical use of ASIMO to communicate with people, the testing will be conducted with the cooperation of Miraikan between Wednesday 2 and Monday 21 November 2013.

In this demonstration testing, ASIMO will autonomously explain its own features to guests visiting the Miraikan. ASIMO will communicate interactively by asking people questions they can respond to by a show of hands. ASIMO will presume their intention and then explain things in an easy-to-understand manner, including gestures.

Through this demonstration testing, Honda will verify the value of ASIMO as a robot that can autonomously explain things to people through a variety of pre-loaded explanations, leveraging the advantage of a robot’s, memory capability, by using multiple sensors to presume the needs of people. Honda will gather various data related to ASIMO’s interactive communication with people in real-world conditions, where the actions of people and the surrounding environment are continuously changing. Honda will feed back such data to future research and development activities.

Let's imagine a future society in which we live alongside robots.
