The TIA Adaptronics Advanced Manufacturing Technology Laboratory (Adaptronics AMTL) was established in 2007. The primary objective of the unit is to specialise as a national manufacturing, research and educational resource centre for Adaptronic Technologies in South Africa.
Adaptronics is the technology that integrates sensor and actuator functions into materials, components and structures so that they may react to environment stimuli thus making them intelligent.
Based on the technology activities, innovation, and successes of the CPUT Adaptronics AMTL, it was officially incorporated into the Technology Innovation Agency’s Technology Station programme in March 2013, and became the 18th Technology Station in South Africa.
