Honda’s humanoid robot makes a stop in Alabama

LINCOLN, Alabama – Honda’s innovative humanoid robot, ASIMO, visited the automaker’s Talladega County plant this week, part of an effort to encourage STEM education among local students and celebrate the advanced technology found throughout the facility.

ASIMO, which stands for Advanced Step in Innovative Mobility, was featured at the Honda Manufacturing of Alabama Family Open House on Sunday. The event drew more than 15,000 Honda employees, family members and friends.

During five, 15-minute demonstrations, the robot climbed stairs, kicked a soccer ball, ran, hopped and danced.

“Of course, robots are intriguing to children, but ASIMO is particularly appealing because of its smaller size and the mobility that it exhibits,” said HMA spokesman Ted Pratt. “But we also hope that ASIMO will encourage and inspire students to learn more about science, technology, engineering and mathematics in their studies.”
