= Optical sensing solutions delivered by an open, decentralized, and self-organizing Value Network.

"SENSORICA is an open, decentralized, self-organizing value network, a commons-based peer-production network, focused on designing sensing ans sensemaking technology.
There are two tracks of innovation within SENSORICA: sensing technology and the value network model. The first is about designing and manufacturing products (sensor devices) to be exchanged on the market (see products). The second is about designing and implementing a new organizational model (see value networks).
As an organization, SENSORICA
- is designed to facilitate the creation and the exchange of value.
Facilitates cooperation and co-creation. Secures transactions and reduces transaction costs. Allows transactions of assets other than fiancial
- is decentralized
The process of decision-making is distributed. It is NOT based on power-relations, it is a value-based network. Resource allocation is bottom-up
- has a very low barrier to entry; it is open in that sense.
- allows free individual initiative.
- as an adaptive structure, constantly changing with respect to internal and environmental conditions.
SENSORICA is partially a commercial entity, partially a gift economy. We find solutions to problems and exchange products and services on the market. But individuals and organizations are also allowed to initiate projects that are mostly passion-driven, without expecting a financial compensation. SENSORICA offers the right balance between passion and duty, between freedom and constraint.
An ethical and humane organization, by its nature. A locus of practical knowledge about sensing. An organization tuned for the know how economy An organizations producing Commons. We bet on speed to market and flexibility rather than protection. We achieve speed by embracing open innovation through a network-to-teams structure. We build capacity by network affiliation / association. We are only limited by our ability to coordinate our global network. We use a contribution-based compensation model."
