Possible advantages of bionic models based on the algorithms  of human vision are discussed. Experimentally it was demonstrated that when observing moving objects the human vision system estimates the dynamic characteristics of the object and can program smooth pursuit on the basis of those. The programmed pursuit considerably widens the capabilities of the foveal vision system.
