Honda may be best known for its automotive pursuits, but this year at CES, the company has plans to debut four robot concepts from its 3E robotics efforts.

The three Es stand for empower, experience and empathy, and together they represent the company’s vision for a solution that blends robotics with AI to help people in a wide range of situations, from extreme disaster relief, as well as daily tasks for learning and recreation.   

Each of the robots serves a distinct, unique purpose, and demonstrate the great lengths the company has come since its humanoid “ASMIO” debuted in 2000.

Honda shows no signs of slowing down as it follows in the footsteps of its competitors by investing in startups like BRAIQ and Tactual Labs in markets in Asia and Europe, as well as in the United States in Detroit.
