It is our mission to develop the technologies and applications for self-powered devices. In our vision energy harvesting will become a platform to enable thousands of IoT products.
Fit & forget solutions
Millions of industrial sensors need their batteries replaced every few years. Battery waste creates huge environmental concerns and will be one of the targets of future regulations. Moreover, battery replacement requires manual labor and comes at significant maintenance costs.
Motion energy harvesting
Everything that moves or vibrates contains kinetic energy. Motion energy harvesters can extract this energy and use it to recharge batteries. In many low-power applications this can result in self-sustaining systems that never run out of power. At MEMSYS we have the technology and know-how to develop systems that can efficiently and reliably extract energy from the vibrations of moving assets.
Asset managers in the railway industry frequently deal with unexpected technical defects. The current reactive approach results in unscheduled downtime, operational disruptions and high maintenance costs.
Visual inspections the main method of identifying technical defects, they requires a lot of time and human resources and often misses the early signs of defects that are barely visible.
We’re currently developing a telematics product that can perform these inspections automatically and reliably. Our technology enables us to continuously monitor for defects such as flat spots and send reports in real-time.
MEMSYS is a Dutch startup founded as a spin-off from the Delft University of Technology. We envision a future where energy harvesting technologies are integrated in every wireless device and replacing batteries is a thing of the past.

Call to action
We’re looking for closed railway systems where we can pilot our solution in a controlled environment: shunting yards, regional railways, industrial sites.
In the pilot, we can provide continuous monitoring of the wagons and infrastructure and real-time reporting on identified damages.
