Iranian researchers of Amir Kabir University of Technology successfully manufactured the first light unmanned helicopter in the country, the state-run IRNA news agency reported on Monday.

The helicopter weighs 10 kg and can fly for one hour with airplane fuel, according to the report.

It is equipped with automatic system and can be used for transmitting information, taking photos and movies, and, in the inter-city journey, can be used as a traffic controller and firefighter, the report said.

On Sept. 3 last year, Iran's Khaje Nasir Toosi University of Technology unveiled the first Iranian two-seat electric urban car, the semi-official Mehr news agency reported.

Dubbed "Qasedak-e Nasir" (Dandelion of Nasir), the vehicle powered by rechargeable batteries was developed by a group of young university researchers.
