    Sweden’s Chalmers University developed a humanoid robot in 2005 that has 22 Degrees of freedom. This robot, called the HR-2, was constructed for over a period of 3 months and can easily move around, copying human movements.

    The Swedish university researchers, headed by Almir Heralic, equipped the HR-2 robot with stereovision. It gave this humanoid robot a depth of vision, which it uses for hand-eye coordination.

    An artificial neural network was enhanced so the artificial brain could be capable of tracking and recognizing human faces.

    The HR-2 is also capable of reading text using a 'Text Aloud MP3' installed on its computer. This allows the robot to internally read the text and translate it verbally.

    This Swedish robot is also capable of reading your emails and other text- based software.
