Tecnologie digitali a supporto dell’apicoltura: l’arnia sensorizzata

The innovation consists in a sensorized hive frame and a scale that allow to monitor some crucial parameters of the system BEE-SWARM-HIVE. The complex of sensors acquires data of internal humidity, temperature, vibration and noise, weight of the hive and external temperature. Data are represented on real time on the PC or mobile devices by means of a customizable dashboard. The innovation is based on ARDUINO system and represents a tool for beekeepers to monitor the hive remotely and to be informed about anomalies immediately.
