New push for commercializing the piezo

Sensoricans in Montreal are now rallying behind behind the piezo project in a new push for commercialization. We are developing a new modular design suitable for multiple applications. SENSORICA badly needs a commercial success case in order to demonstrate that our value network model can close the loop from design to distribution and service, to become self-sustainable.

Electronics - the Driver

The design is finished and parts have been ordered. We now need to assemble the driver.

Mechanics - the Actuator

After some initial problems with the 3D printing process Daniel got the dimensions right. We now have a design of that we can print on demand, and a base from which we can customize and modify.
