Surena IV, an advanced humanoid developed by Iranian roboticists. The robot is the result of 10 year of studies and various iteration, from a basic walking robot Surena I, to an advanced model Surena IV ready to be used for researches purposes.
The new robot is a major improvement over previous designs.
Surena IV features :
- mimicking a person’s pose in real time using cameras
- grasping a water bottle
- writing on a whiteboard.
- faces and object recognition
- 3d navigation
They also build a test version called “Mini Surena” , that can perform mini-karate moves 🙂
Surena IV is not a agile like Atlas, but it has on a motion controller that continuously adjusts its posture to avoid falls. In its overall design, Surena is closer to humanoid robots like UBTECH’s CRUZR or XR-1 robotic girl .
The team composed of more than 50 researchers from the University of Tehran.
