Introduction

The Green Wall project was created at the time Sensorica was working with CDEC Rosemont on Project VIE. The plan was to install green walls in the space that was supposed to host the Sensorica Montreal lab/community.

These green walls were imagined to serve the purpose of mobile physical space separators, food supply and green laboratory for indoor microfarming. Project VIE failed, and soon after the LED Green Wall project lost momentum.

In parallel, other Sensorica projects related to food growing were developed and lumped under the GreenSense branding. Meanwhile, John, a sensorican from Australia, continued a relentless work of integrating open source hardware and developed software for automated and connected urban agriculture, see documentation here.

The goal of the project is to perfect sensing and automation systems for indoors microfarming. Some of this technology will be applied to large scale greenhouse operations.

  • [Jan 28 2020] Tibi and John went over the new GrowSense software, reinstalled it on the Sensorica Green Wall (running on an Orange Pi Zero). The new system has a web interface to view data and manipulate hardware configuration.

Governance

more on Governance page
PROJECTS are seen as COLLABORATIVE VENTURES, which are TRANSPARENT (anyone has access to the information that they produce) and OPEN (anyone can participate). They only produce PRODUCTS and services based on OPEN SOURCE knowledge or technology. PROJECTS have a CUSTODIAN that represents them legally and acts as a trust for their tangible assets. PROJECTS can have multiple EXCHANGE FIRMS, which are commercial entities that move products and services developed by PROJECTS on the MARKET. EXCHANGE FIRMS oblige themselves by contract with the CUSTODIAN to share PROFIT with all contributors to PROJECTS, from which they commercialize PRODUCTS.
