Festo Bionic Swift

It is the Festo Bionic Swift, which can fly just like a live bird. Its dimensions are 44.5 cm in length and 68 cm in wingspan, and it weighs only 42 G. Thanks to its lightweight construction, the wings are constructed of lightweight, flexible, and sturdy foam that mimics the look of bird feathers. When the wing is in an upstroke, its individual segments spread out to let air flow through it.

When the wing is in a downstroke, the segments close to provide additional thrust. The control components, communication technologies, and mechanism for flapping the wings are all housed in the bird’s body, which is incredibly small. For safe and synchronized flight, it employs an indoor GPS system that is radio-based. If the Bionic Swift’s flight path gets messed up because of unexpected changes in the weather, it can fix it on its own.

Bionic Fish: Festo Airacuda

Festo Airacuda one example of a bionic fish is the Festo Airacuda which is operated by remote control and powered by pneumatics. Propelled by a mechanical fin drive, its designed operation and structure are reminiscent of fish. The fluidic muscle that powers the fin drive mimics the action of the fins on the tails of many fish species. The Airacuda is able to propel itself through the water by harnessing the power of the fin effect, which it exploits in conjunction with its fin stroke.

Like its archetypal aquatic counterpart, it maintains its equilibrium with the help of an air bladder. You have the option to fill the inside cavity of the hull with air or water. Water, in order to control the flow of compressed air or vacuum into the air chamber, a pressure sensor measures the depth and transmits a signal to the electronics. With just four actuators, the Airacuda can do all of its maneuvering.
