TEHRAN, Dec. 14 (MNA) – Another Iranian-manufactured social robot, designed to interact and communicate with humans, will be unveiled on Tuesday, according to VP for Science and Technology Sorena Sattari.

Speaking in the unveiling ceremony of the fourth generation of SURENA humanoid robot on Saturday, Vice-President for Science and Technology Sattari announced that another social robot, designed and manufactured by Iranian experts, will be unveiled at an international exhibition on December 17, marking the National Research Week in the country.

Talking about the first generation of SURENA humanoid robot which was unveiled in 2007, Sattari said this class of robot is nowadays used in schools and research institutes.

“Some good projects concerning the manufacture of social robots will come into effect by our researchers in the future,” he said.

“Making these robots accessible to the public will be of great use; as such, we need to always strive to commercialize them,” he added.

The SURENA II project was launched in 2008, capable of walking as well as performing some exhibitive scenarios.
