Asimo may have travelled the world but it was a different
assignment for Honda's advanced humanoid robot when it travelled to Emirate of
Dubai to attend the Government Summit: "Shaping Future Governments".
The three-day summit was organised under the patronage of
His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, UAE Vice President, Prime
Minister and Ruler of Dubai. It was the largest government gathering of its
type in the world.
The annual event, which ran from February 9-11, 2015 attracted
more than 4,000 delegates from 93 countries, including heads of state, prime
ministers, vice presidents, ministers, diplomats and NGO – each in attendance
to share best practices and discuss how to improve government services across
Asimo participated in the opening ceremony, which saw the humanoid
robot play soccer with His Highness Sheikh Hamdan Bin Mohammed Al Maktoum
(Crown Prince of Dubai) and meet his father, Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al
Maktoum for a handshake.
Asimo performed a total of 12 shows (in Arabic and English)
at the summit, each showcasing Honda's cutting-edge robotics technology and
long-standing dedication to innovation.
