Iranian project Surena unveils new humanoid robot

Meet Iran’s Surena III robot, a walking, talking and object-recognizing engineering marvel, whose predecessor put Iran among the five countries in the world capable of such feats in robotics, according to the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE).

The third generation of the humanoid robot was developed by researchers at the University of Tehran and demonstrated during a ceremony in Tehran on Monday.

The 190-cm tall robot has the capability of interacting with its surrounding environment via built-in auditory and visual sensors. It is also capable of facial recognition and can react to various intercepted body positions.

Surena can walk at a speed of 0.7 km/h, a pace seven times that of its predecessor which was unveiled in 2010. It can also maneuver aptly across stairs and uneven terrain with improved mobility and dexterity.
