3Bee has designed Hive-Tech, an artificial intelligent IoT diagnostic and monitoring system able to collect important biological parameters inside the hive.
Merging electronic devices and biological analysis, 3Bee has designed an artificial intelligent IoT diagnostic and monitoring systems for farming animals in order to change the way in which they are managed, moving from chemical and antibiotic treatments to data driven solutions.
3Bee first focus has been bees, since they are the most important animal in the world. Their pollination activity is indispensable for the environment, biodiversity, and our life, but bees' population is constantly decreasing because of pesticides, pathogens, diseases, poor beehive management, poor diet, and climate changes.
It is completely energy self-sufficient and can be installed in every kind of hive. All the data collected by the sensors are sent to the cloud, where they are stored and analyzed. Artificial intelligence predictive algorithms allow early detection of diseases and anomalies, permitting prompt and focused interventions. Thus, treatments will be reduced, bee health safeguarded and the beehive management improved and optimized. The device is easily adapted to other livestock, such as pigs and broiler, in order to monitor their health status and tackle the ever growing problem of antibiotic resistance.
SDG’s of application
The Solar Impulse Efficient Solution label seeks to bridge the gap between ecology and economy, bringing together protection of the environment and financial viability to show that these solutions are not expensive fixes to problems, but rather opportunities for clean economic growth.
