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.
