Hive-Tech is an innovative IoT monitoring system for hives. Its sensors collect information about weight, temperature, humidity, and sound. The data are gathered in the cloud and analyzed, helping to identify diseases and anomalies. Algorithms will be developed to predict and prevent bees' diseases and thus reducing the mortality rate. This system will change the way in which apiaries are managed, moving from the use of chemicals to a data-driven solution, and helping beekeepers to reduce costs and improve production. The device can be easily adapted to other farm animals (pigs, broiler).
