Despite the General assumption that the main producers of the planet in the field of robotics are Asian countries, particularly Japan and South Korea, recently, Iran presented the public its latest version of humanoid robot. The device was developed at the Center for advanced systems and technologies, University of Tehran (CAST) and able to carry out unique operation, the closing mechanism with a human.
Robot from Iran learned how to do a selfie
Humanoid robot Surena, fully designed by Iranian developers are able to write your name, balance on one leg, grab a water bottle, drill the wall and even take a selfie with everyone, claims portal inverse.com. Dr. A. yousefi-Koma, a Professor of mechanical engineering, who heads a group of researchers who worked on creating the robot, believes that one of the main principles of development of artificial intelligence the future is to improve the interaction of the robot with the environment. The same approach was used when creating Surena humanoid. The scientist notes that the creation of a robot able to carrying out several manipulations in the same time, was for the researchers not the easiest task as it might seem at first glance. The mere design of adequate sensitivity for the “hands” of the device, according to the scientist, is a real feat in the field of robotics.
Despite the fact that Suren IV can’t do parkour, as in his time did the Atlas robot from Boston Dynamics, the device can balance better than before, to interact with a large number of objects and, in General, capable of performing most tasks that would make the average person.
Due to the fact that robotics individual countries develop in different ways and in different directions, achieve robot surena can be equated to dismissed a couple of years ago, the Honda robot Asimo. In particular, both of the robot can help to assess the level of dostizhenia in the field of artificial fine motor skills in humanoid robots, which is an important factor in the degree of their similarity to humans.
If we consider the Iranian robot design point of view, we can see that the device lacks a more “humanized” design.smooth and almost shapeless body Surena suggests a hint of the person, the presence of the portal on the “forehead” of the device is signaled to observers that the robot is never completely will not replace them.
