  • Work - Information mining — updated Oct. 18, 2021
    Purpose: Create a list of existing technology The goal here is to avoid reinventing the wheel as much as possible and to speed up innovation. The accent is put on open source technologies that can be remixed. Use some tool for gathering information about all existing technologies that can be applied in this project. You can use Diigo https://groups.diigo.com/group/sensorica-knowledge or simply a spreadsheet. If you use Diigo, create a tag specific to this search, to make it easier for others to find/filter the data. Place the information in categories, as mechanical, electronics, optics, attributes or functions, etc. This material will be used later to make a decision about what to integrate and how much to build on top of existing technologies.

  • Work - Administration — updated Oct. 18, 2021
    Purpose: Create and adopt governance document for the project. Every project is governed independently, it has its own value equation and governance. The Project Governance Doc is a very important foundational document that will save a lot of time later and will greatly reduce the risk of conflicts during the course of the project. NOTE: The Project Governance Doc is a participatory document, meaning that everyone involved in the beginning should adopt it. You can start from a template and remix your own. The Project Governance Doc must contain a process for changing the governance at a later moment.
