Long Term Impact
SENSORICA is reinventing work and the workplace. It is the most ambitions project in commons-based peer production, focused on open source hardware development and distribution. SENSORICA projects address various problems, providing low cost open source scientific instruments, environmental monitoring instruments, instruments for precision agriculture, health care instruments, ...
Our Greatest Challenges
Our greatest challenges are * source projects * outreach for our projects * distribution of our products
How We Will Overcome Our Challenges
Increasing contributory participation: individuals involved in projects are seen as investors (in time, money, materials, social capital, ...) Increasing sponsorship for infrastructure development.
SENSORICA offers a lab space in Montreal where most of the prototyping takes place. We want to create other physical locations around the world, as stand alone labs, or embedded within the existing infrastructure of fablabs, makerspaces and hackerspaces
We need * funding * more participation in projects * outreach and distribution of our product-solutions
