The Swiss National Competence Center for Research in Mobile Information and Communication Systems (NCCR MICS or MICS) is a research initiative sponsored by the Swiss National Science Foundation to promote long term research projects in areas of vital strategic importance for Switzerland. The NCCR MICS covers a wide spectrum of topics in the area of mobile information and communication systems, ranging from information theory related to ad-hoc sensor networks to business models for pervasive computing, including network and routing issues, software and application development, and actual deployments of sensor networks. In this paper, we briefly present MICS as a whole, describe a major application in the area of environmental monitoring and discuss in some detail the hardware and software platforms developed in the Center.
