The highlight of the Bionic Learning Network in 2011 was SmartBird. With this flight model Festo has succeeded in deciphering the flight of birds. Just as with the Bionic Tripod 3.0, the Bionic Handling Assistant and its further development, Robotino® XT, Festo is focusing on energy efficiency and lightweight design.
