Asimo's Collides with New Honda Cars

This article starts off as your average Honda PR piece, but I found a line or two rather intriguing:

"...if it wasn't for Asimo, the new CR-V wouldn't have its collision mitigation or adaptive cruise systems, because both came of engineers playing with their mechanical friend. The resin of which Asimo is made is used in Honda's aviation projects (it recently branched out into jets) and F1 cars."
Given Asimo's recent endeavors, I'd say don't trust the collision avoidance, and from Asimo's faceplate's reaction to that fall, I'd expect some cracking in those jets.

In fact, I were those kids in the picture, I'd be double checking for cars too!
