Network Infomechanical Systems -- Washington State (Image 2)

June 10, 2010
Network Infomechanical Systems -- Washington State (Image 2) A robotic sensor node can be seen here, hanging on a suspended cableway between the canopies of two trees 150 feet above the forest floor at Wind River Canopy Crane Research Facility in Washington State. The sensor node is part of UCLA's Network Infomechanical Systems (NIMS) project of the Center for Embedded Networked Sensing (CENS). The NIMS node systems acquire precise microclimate data, as well as extensive images. This provides both autonomous investigation capability and realtime remote access to the forest, from the surface to the canopy tops. [One of several related images.
