Asimo at Robo Japan 2008
The most interesting developments with Asimo, as far as I am concerned, were the gesture recognition routines. Sadly, there was none of that in his latest appearance at Robo Japan 2008. The camera is used ‘only’ to detect humans, receive objects from them or hand them over. That is an interesting trick too.
ASIMO uses eye cameras on its head and force sensors on its wrists to detect the motion of people. It can reliably hand objects to people, and receive them as well.
