Quadruped Robot Takes Big Strides Towards Saving Lives

Utilising F1 micro hydraulics to control the leg motion of the HyQ

When Researchers at the Istituto Italiano Di Technologia (IIT) wanted to bring to life their HyQ “Hydraulically actuated Quadruped”, to assist humans in their response to emergencies such as search and rescue operations in dangerous places, they approached Moog for a solution.

The HyQ (Hydraulically actuated Quadruped) robot developed by IIT

Our Moog experts provided niche automation and robotics services to assist researchers at Istituto Italiano di Technologia (IIT) in bringing their hydraulically actuated Quadruped to life, designed to help in emergencies at search and rescue operations.

The concept of “actively compliant” legs was made possible by the extremely high response of the Moog E024-LA miniature hydraulic servo valve integrated with a Moog servo actuator and additive manufactured manifold to control leg motion.
