Researchers in the Electronics and Communications Department at Ceit-IK4 are developing a novel system that generates energy from the downward motion of a door handle. This system will make it possible to eliminate the batteries placed inside current electronic lock systems, leading to savings in maintenance costs since batteries will no longer have to be replaced. This same power harvesting system can be used in other doors, blinds or any type of element that uses a turning mechanism.
