Sensorica is the first open value network (OVN), first serious attempt to implement a viable model for material peer production. The OVN model was developed within the Sensorica organizational context, by Sensorica affiliates conducting real open source hardware development projects.
Sensorica OVN is committed to the design and deployment of intelligent, open sensors and sensemaking systems, which allow our communities to optimize interactions with our physical environment and realize our full human potential.
Sensorica went online in February 2011, on a simple Google site. The network was sparked by 3 co-founders: Tibi, Francois Bergeron and Ivan Pavlov. Sensorica and its OVN model was the successor of Tibi's Discovery Network model, which was implemented for a collaborative venture spearheaded by Tibi, called Matchmaking device, between 2009 and 2011.
Sensorica is the open network-type organisation that proposed the OVN model, and remains the most important experimentation ground for this model.
