Looking For A Cure For Colony Collapse Disorder With HiveSense #NatureAndTechnology

NewImage

Bees are dying at a rapid rate and although there are many theories as to why, no one truly knows the reason. Hive Sense is hoping to learn more by monitoring and logging environmental conditions of the beehive to see how the information correlates with the health of the bees. via TechnologyforNature

Bee keeping is not a simple task but is very rewarding as the hive is a complex, well balanced eco system. Unfortunately the bee population is in decline and they need all the help they can get, hence the idea behind this project. By logging a few simple data points, such as temp, humidity, light we can gain info about the health of the bee hive.

The bee hive logging hardware is an off the shelf prototyping tool called .NET Gadgeteer and by making the hardware simple, extensible we hope to get people interested in instrumenting their bee hive.
