Build an automated and connected Green Wall.


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.


  • Interior design, space configuration, aesthetics

  • Indoor air cleaning and purification

  • Indoors and outdoor food production

  • Oct 2022 - Emanuel leading the mechanical and electronic integration of the Green wall prototype at the Sensorica MTL lab, prototype to be operational by 2023.

  • [Oct. 12, 2020] Tibi has registered the Green Wall project for a day-long Hackathon, during the Open Climate Collabathnon COMMUNITY EVENTS, in November 2020

  • [September, 2020] Work on the piping of the device has started, to be finalized in October

  • [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.

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