One small step for humanizing, one giant leap toward alcoholism, drug addiction, reefer madness, etc.

Although this might seem to be a diversion from what Honda engineers really ought to be working on, it turns out that some of the developments related to ASIMO have had application to Honda cars and motorcycles: the vehicle stability assist (VSA) systems are predicated on ASMIO research.

Presumably if you can teach a robot to hop on one leg, you can help modulate yaw when carving corners in a Civic.


Hey Honda: Just give us back double-wishbone suspensions and let go of this robot foolishness.
