About Our Lab
AATL is a collaborative research space in the Purdue Polytechnic Institute, that is focused on production of adaptive structures. The lab utilizes additive manufacturing and novel manufacturing processes for production of
· Smart sensors
· Piezo electrics
· Dielectric elastomer electroactive polymer actuators
· Integrated hydraulic components
· Hydraulic systems modeling
The lab also focuses energy conversion and education and works on the linkage between smart sensors and actuators and industrial IoT applications.
This lab space is designed as a working environment for researchers and students incorporating desk and workbench space.
The lab space includes multiple 3-D printers including FDMs and SLAs, high voltage power supplies, electrical testing equipment, optical recording software, and general purpose tooling. The lab is includes access to software for design through AutoCAD and ProEngineer, along with finite element software, COMSOL, and lab control and design through LabVIEW.MGL 1232
