Students at Tehran University have designed a humanoid robot with its overall appearance based on that of the human body.

Walking with the help of infrared radiation and remote control, speaking in predicted sentences and, moving of head and hands were made possible for the robot during the first phase of the project.

The Iranian robot, Sourena will be able to take steps, climb stairs and later on, he will be programmed to hear and see objects.

Sourena --named after the Parthian Iranian warrior Sourena (84 BCE-54 BCE) who defeated the Roman general Crassus at the Battle of Carrhae-- is 1.6 meters (5.2 ft) tall and weighs around 60 kilograms.
