Sourena refers to a series of Iranian-made humanoid robots, named after the Parthian General Sourena. The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) has placed the Sourena Robot among the five most prominent robots of the world after analyzing its performance, Iran Press reported.

In November 2017 the Iranian Center for Advanced Systems and Technologies (CAST), part of the University of Teheran, publically unveiled Sourena III, a very advanced adult-sized humanoid robot, who can walk, run, speak and recognize people. This was the third version of the robot, released 7 and 5 years respectively after its predecessors, Sourena I and II.
