Mobile Water Management is a spinoff from technology institute, Delft University, founded in The Netherlands and is a leading technology firm specializing in pattern recognition (optical and sound) technologies and “self-learning” software solutions. It consists of a strong international team with field experience and scientific expertise in operational water management and the utility sector. We have implemented Decision Support Systems (DSS) for water management all around the world.
Our mission is to drive complete digitization of field measurement operations in various industries (e.g. utilities, water/flood management) using smartphones as an intelligent device. We achieve this by exploiting existing wireless/cellulor network and low-cost investment in infrastructure upgrade.
Hajo Heusinkveld – Director/Chief Technology Officer. Leads the Mobile Water Management development team and is responsible for general operations. Hajo holds a Master degree from the University of Amsterdam and uses cross-disciplinary expertise ranging from water management to business development.
Meinte Vierstra is a civil engineer specialized in water engineering & management. He received a prestigious award for his master thesis work in China in 2009. Meinte did research and consultancy work for, amongst others, the Dutch Ministry of Transport, Public works and Water Management (Rijkswaterstaat).
Jose M. Maestre
José M. Maestre is associate professor at the systems and automation department of the University of Seville and the head developer of the Mobile Water Management control engine. His main research areas are distributed control and service robotics, topics in which he has authored and co-authored more than 70 conference and journal publications. Recently, he has started to research novel control architectures with humans in the loop.
Peter-Jules van Overloop
Peter-Jules was one of the founders of Mobile Water Management and associate professor at Delft University of Technology teaching the master course Operational Water Management. In 2015 he died unexpectedly. He was our great inspirator and motivator. We miss him as a friend and colleague.
Since 15 years he worked on modeling and control of drainage and irrigation canals. His main interest was canal automation and more recently the application of smart-phones as device to improved water management practice. We continue his scientific work together with students and colleagues!
MWM representative for California
Jeff is an engineer for Davids Engineering, a part-time lecturer at CSU Chico, and president of H2oTech. He is a registered civil engineer in California. Jeff’s interests include the Water-Energy-Food (Environment) nexus, the characterization of Stream-Aquifer interactions, flow measurement, and low tech solutions for environmental monitoring problems.
MWM representative Australia
Willem is a civil engineer with a PhD in Irrigation engineering from Utah State University in the US. Originally from the Netherlands he now is an Aussie, living in Canberra. Throughout his professional life he has been involved with flow measurement all over the world; measuring, calibrating and interpreting the results. Apart from being representative for Mobile Water Management In Australia, he works with the Murray-Darling Basin Authority, promoting use of Remote Sensing for dissemination and interpretation of water balance data and owns the consultancy company Willflow. He advocates the water-food-energy nexus as the major driver for sustainable green economy.
