The newly established Moog@IIT joint lab is focusing on the development of next-generation actuation and control technologies for autonomous robots. IIT and Moog will work together over the next three years to develop the required technologies to push autonomous robots closer to the real-world applications and the market.

Moog is a worldwide designer, manufacturer, and integrator of precision control components and systems for aircraft, space vehicles, industrial machinery, marine, motorsport, and medical equipment. Its high-performance control systems and products are used in most commercial aircraft, by Formula 1 racing teams and in world-leading hydraulic legged robots. Moog is currently investing into the emerging field of autonomous systems and identified IIT as ideal research partner due to its unique know-how in the design and control of autonomous legged robots.
