Autonomous beekeeping monitoring system to increase the productivity of apiculture
A partnership project to develop an autonomous apiary monitoring system.
The Technical University of Riga, in collaboration with technology companies and beekeepers, developed and tested a unique autonomous solution for beekeeping, that can be used via a computer or smartphone. Unlike other IT-based beekeeping solutions in the world, this system allows keepers to monitor their whole apiary, not just an individual beehive or bee.
The system allows beekeepers to monitor their whole apiary and identify the best honey production locations.
The use of alternative energy sources means that the system can be used in different parts of Latvia.
The documentation developed during the project provides the information needed for beekeepers to build a similar system elsewhere.
