The Moog@IIT joint lab was founded in 2016 and is focusing on the development of next-generation actuation and control technologies for autonomous robots. IIT and Moog are collaborating 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.
