NIMS Laboratory Systems


Following in the footsteps of the field Networked Infomechanical Systems (NIMS) currently deployed at the James San Jacinto Mountain Reserve in Idyllwild California, two smaller scale NIMS architectures have emerged. The Laboratory Systems (NIMS-LS) provides an experimental testbed for verification of actuated sensing of environmental phenomena. The NIMS-LS System also includes emulation of environmental phenomena (i.e. light distribution in ecosystems). The Rapidly Deployable (NIMS-RD) platform provides a flexible means of sampling environmental phenomena directly with minimal infrastructure, rapid deployability and minimal impact on the environment. NIMS-RD has been deployed at the James San Jacinto Mountain Reserve, Medea Creek in the Santa Monica Mountains, Merced River in Merced CA and White Mountains Research Station near Bishop CA.
