ASHIMO is not an automatic machine but an autonomous machine, because it has three important functions as follows.
1, It always keeps a proper posture on its own judgement.
2, It walks/runs while being careful not to bump into nearby people, as it always watches them to guess their following directions.
3, It spontaneously makes decisions without human intervention.

It, with the hight of 130cm, can walk and run at 9 kilometers an hour. In addition, it understands the meaning of what three people speak at the same time, jumps, goes up and down the stairs, and moves backward. The latest model can open can open the lid of a battle to pour the content into a glass, and even uses sign language. ASHIMO's development was started in 1986 to reach 'Astro Boy'. The day when Astro Boy is realized might come soon. The demonstration of this humanoid robot can be seen at 'Honda Welcome Plaza' and 'National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation, both of them are in Tokyo.
