TEHRAN, Nov. 15 (MNA) – The unveiling ceremony for the third generation of Iranian humanoid robot dubbed ‘Surena’ will take place on Monday at Faculty of Mechanical Engineering of University of Tehran.
The ceremony will be attended by Iran's Vice President for Science and Technology and the President of Iran's National Elites Foundation Sorena Sattari.
The humanoid robots Surena I and Surena II have been designed and developed by researchers and engineers at University of Tehran.
Surena I is Iran’s first humanoid robot, introduced in 13 December 2008. It is 165cm tall and weighs 60km. It is able to speak according to predefined text, and has remote control and tracking ability.
Surena II was introduced two years later on July 3. It is 145 centimeters tall and weighs 45 kilograms. Surena II is able to walk, but slowly with a combination movements of hands, head and legs. It is also able to stand on one leg and keep its balance, and to dance. Surena II has 22 degrees of freedom, including 12 at its legs, 8 at its hands and 2 at its head.
Surena III is said to be able to walk faster – 10 times faster than its prevous model - and also recognize faces, objects, words and sentences with appropriate reactions. It can also pass over obstacles, walk on stairs and sloping surfaces, move backwards and interact with humans.
According to the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), Iran's manufacture of Surena makes it one of five countries in the world with the technology to make humanoid robots.
