Our hives went up a few IQ points!

Yesterday, Yale Bee Space members went out to Yale west campus to instal sensors on our bee hives.  The sensors gather data on sound, humidity, temperature, and weight through the use of an Arduino and solar panels.  We can now collect and analyze data about our bees and will hopefully make some great discoveries with our new smart hives!1480529_232239730315577_509098890_n 1920392_232239820315568_1351955090_n 1969203_232240176982199_1991927960_n 1978746_232240210315529_614868652_n 1978910_232239646982252_2050758044_n 10151418_232239686982248_346873540_n

  1. This looks awesome! I have to wonder, though, how have you safeguarded your system? Is there a backup battery or something?

    1. Hi Austin,

      The sensors on the hives do not have a backup battery, but they are all solar powered, which should allow them to gather data for a long time before needing to be checked or replaced.

      Cheers!
