The Honda Asimo now knows how to navigate around people in work areas, a seemingly simple, yet complex task. It can also share and coordinate tasks with other Asimos and dock itself at the recharge station as needed. These abilities enable the Asimo to be more autonomous in a workplace and bring it one step closer to replacing actual humans.

Implications - The advancement of robots has shown how rapidly technology is advancing. The use of these androids can be extremely beneficial in completing certain tasks. Robots provide convenience, but they also provide safety when it comes to conducting high-risk jobs. There's that risk that jobs may be replaced in certain industries, but these bots will continue to be built for the sake of making life more manageable in all respects.
