Bees have an immediate and massive impact on Earth`s ecosystem, variety, nutrition quality and food amount by being such hard-working pollinators. The numbers prove their vital importance. over three-quarters of food production around the world depends on the actions of natural pollinators (mainly bees); but also, that pollinators are dying out at an alarming rate, around 30% per year.
In the past, nature was successfully managing pollination processes, but in the last decade or so, there is a dramatic decline of bee species. The facts that affect this are the intensive agricultural practices (insecticides, monocultures, landscape changes), CCD syndrome (colony collapse disaster – still inexplicable) and the climate changes all over the world.
In the search of countering sollutions for the bee decline, reversing the process, humankind Introduced IOT into the bees world, finding various ways of saving the bees through data and patterns analitics and AI, innovative technologies increasing the apiaries efficiency.
Applying existing and newly created web solutions to traditional beekeeping ways of functioning seem necessary at this point of beehive crisis. Bees definitely deserve fighting for them on all fronts.
Thehoneyhey project have main target implementing into the bee life the last tech tools dedicated to find best ways of modelating the traditional beekeeping work for the good of the bees:
- bees cycle monitoring methods: through innovative sensoristic technologies will be chase: temperature, noise, humidity, weight, feedbacks that are providing us real time information about health of the bee family, queen status and much more;
- introducing AI into beelife environment (reimagine the beekeeping practices);
- beehive management web solutions.
These tech tools will help beekeepers identify a wide variety of problems, earlier than they can using traditional inspections.
On the same area are the tech innovations that are combating the fake honey, different tracking/monitoring innovations where any consumer have access to a monitoring/chasing system of the honey from the field to his table.
Honey jar monitor and tracking
Monitor the temperature, jar opening and location.
Application server runs in a cloud (Google cloud, Amazon AWS). It will contain the user database, beacons database, customers and vendors etc.
Sensor and locations of beacons, being sensible information, that reflect the quality of the product, can be stored in a blockchain, avoiding any data alteration and losing.
User mobile application
When the customer receives the goods, with his mobile app can detect and identify only its owned jars via BLE, read the sensor logs and check that the transportation was done in good environment conditions, without critical events. After that, he can confirm the delivery and open quality tickets if it is the case.
Application can be used to make orders, and other system extended functions.
