Smartbird – Biomimetic Robotic Bird by Festo
Their wings follow a periodic reciprocating pattern that on its own creates the relative air velocity necessary for generating lift. This enables them to use their wing both for propulsion and lift while they can also take-off instantly and hover. When air velocity is high enough they are also able to hover without consuming any energy. Hmm…very smart. The other Smart from this Smartbird is…it’s can take off and landing with autonomously.
