OK so perhaps i might fit the bill but i live in France. I do already have a client that I am currently working with in Canada however.
Take a Quick look at my website WWW.EmbeddedAT.com
and decide if you think I may be a good fit.
I work with start-up companies and help to take POC through to production. I have a couple of Kick starter projects under my belt as well. The most recent being "The Barman"
I fly a quad-copter based on, naturally, the ardupilot flight controller.
I have built stabilization systems for clients needing to maintain antenna position and am currently working on a client developing a 20 point self leveling platform.
Feel free to drop me an email to Peter@EmbeddedAT.com
if you want to have a chat about the project with me or grill me about my skills
