Iran's humanoid robot, Surena 2, has been placed among the world's top robots by an international technology institute, says an Iranian official.


“The largest professional institute of the world named IEEE put the name of Surena among the five prominent robots of the world after analyzing (the performances of) the world's advanced robots,” IRNA quoted Hamid Taahbaz Tavakkoli, the secretary of development and technology institute of Iran's Industries and Mines Ministry, as saying on Sunday.

Tavakkoli said that IEEE, the world's leading professional association for the advancement of technology, in a recent report examined the performances of the robots Asimo (Japan), Reem-B (Spain), Justin (German), Charli (US) and Surena (Iran).

The official pointed out that IEEE called Surena as an “unexpected development.”

IEEE is an international non-profit, professional organization for the advancement of technology related to electricity. It has the most members of any technical professional organization in the world, with more than 395,000 members in around 150 countries.

Surena 2, developed by over 20 of Iran's top robotics experts, was unveiled by Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in July.

Over 10,000 man-hours have been put into the new high-tech robot.

Surena 2, which weighs 45 kg and has a height of 1.45 meters, can walk like a human being, but at a slower pace.

The Surena 1 robot was developed in Iran in 2008 through a joint project between Center for Advanced Vehicles (CAV), University of Tehran and the R&D Society of Iranian Industries and Mines.

The robot was an 8 degree-of-freedom (8 DOF) humanoid robot, which was able to move on a pre-defined trajectory with a tracking and remote control system.

Surena 2 which was later built has 22 DOFs, including 12, 8, and 2 at its legs, hands and head respectively.

The robot is equipped with various sensors such as a gyroscope and accelerometers which provide stable motion.

The Surena project is enhancing the ability to design robots that walk on two legs, under a feedback control system that provides dynamic balance, yielding a much more human-like motion.

he doesn't say from himself. he's quoting from the IEEE.

These Humanoid Robots Could Kick Your Asimo:

SURENA 2 University of Tehran's Advanced Vehicles Center, Tehran

This 1.45-meter-high humanoid was developed to help researchers explore aspects of bipedal locomotion, says Tehran University professor Aghil Yousefi-Koma. His team is working on a feedback control system that yields a much more humanlike motion. Surena 2 might be a slow walker, but it has its tricks: It can bow, stand on one leg, and according to some news reports, dance. Dance-off, Asimo?

that proves it ;)
