Honda Motor Co. is developing a successor to its ASIMO humanoid robot, which can walk on two legs, to use for more practical purposes such as nursing care, a company official said Thursday.

"We will promote the development of two-legged robots, while continuing activities using the ASIMO robots," the official said, adding that Honda's biped robots may no longer bear the name ASIMO in the future.
