As technology evolves, every household is predicted to have at least one robot in the future, just as many of today's consumers feel incomplete without Internet access or a mobile phone.

That's the future envisioned by Honda Motor Co., and with the progress being chalked up by Asimo, its humanoid robot, such an era is approaching.

Honda is using its robotics prowess to seek new possibilities in human mobility. These include one-person vehicles and machines that help people walk.
