Welcome to the MTN Mobile Intelligence Lab

 

The MTN Mobile Intelligence Lab is a multidisciplinary environment where engineering solutions are developed and research contributions are made that is relevant to everyday problems encountered. The academic focus of  the lab is to explore the next frontier in mobile technology and computing, telemetry, cloud computing, mobile value-added-services (VAS) and intelligent transport systems (ITS). The lab was established in 2014 as a initiative from MTN to initiate projects able to bring positive improvement to everyday problems, and  to ultimately impact the world. The lab and it's inhabitants are funded by MTN, with financial support provided to students for academic requirements as well as development funding for their projects. A diverse combination of backgrounds involved in the MIL has a perfect synergy and innovative environment as a result, leading to the novel solutions of the engineering challenges addressed in the lab. 

Who Are We

What We Do

The diverse group of individuals involved at the MTN MIL thinks differently about solving engineering challenges encountered. The individuals involved at the MIL includes researchers, students, lecturers and industry professionals. The combination of the backgrounds present in the MIL creates an extremely diverse creative environment, as backgrounds include electrical and electronic engineering, mechatronic engineering, computer sciences, urban planning, and statistics. The majority of the individuals involved at the MIL are from The University of Stellenbosch, although various international collaborations exist, allowing researchers, students and international institutions to bring their contributions to the MIL's table. The unique combination of individuals in the MIL ensures that the right levels of innovation, synergy and experience are brought to the projects in the lab.

The work that is being done at the Mobile Intelligence Lab varies greatly, but is relevant to areas of mobile technology and computing, telemetry, cloud computing, mobile value-added-services (VAS) and intelligent transport systems (ITS). The research contribution being made is relevant to problems experienced in our current daily lives. The problems solved are done in a manner that questions the status quo and challenges the norm to create innovations that are relevant and the best possible solutions.
