Welcome to the MEMSCON!

MEMSCON, with the aid of recent advances into Computation, Radio-Frequency Identification (RFID), Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems (MEMS) and Low-Power Wireless technologies, provides latest generation, cheap and easy to mount sensors that can equip buildings and provide quantitative information on the structure˘s physical state while in service.

The system will be installable into concrete buildings and data will be sent to a central station (wirelessly) for processing and aiding decisions on proactive rehabilitation and rehabilitation after earthquake damages. It is highly expected that this will result in increased safety and lower maintenance costs by tackling problems when they first appear.

Furthermore, MEMSCON will transform the SME dominated building rehabilitation sector into an advanced knowledge sector, enhance the competitiveness of European SMEs, reduce time to assess the structural condition of a building in service and decide on remedial measures, promote sustainability, offer services with a high value added and enable the entrance of MEMS European SMEs to the large building market.

We are looking forward to seeing you at our final MEMSCON event that will run in Athens in March 2012. For more information, please go to Workshop in Athens.
