BeeLive: The IOT platform of Beemon monitoring and alerting system for beehives

Monitoring honey beehives is mainly done manually by beekeepers to evaluate the health of their hives and determine their growth and yield. With the emergence of Internet of Things (IoT) devices and tools, there have been some efforts in recent years to automate such monitoring. This can significantly benefit beekeepers as they can obtain critical data and insight into their hives' health and performance more regularly. In this paper, we use IoT devices and the Thingsboard dashboard to track the status of 28 honey beehives installed in the Western region of North Carolina as part of the Appalachian Multi-Apiary Informatics System (AppMAIS) project. In order to acquire data from a beehive, humidity and temperature sensors, as well as a microphone, have been placed inside the hives. In addition, a video camera has been placed at the top of the hive's entrance to obtain video recordings of the bees entering and …

Optical wireless communication for the Internet of Things: Advances, challenges, and opportunities

The continuous development of the Internet of Things (IoT) calls for innovative solutions and technologies to realize the IoT vision efficiently. One of the rising connectivity technologies that can potentially benefit the IoT deployment is Optical Wireless Communication (OWC) technology. In OWC, light beams from light sources are used to modulate information. The receiver demodulates the received light and processes the signal. The broad unlicensed spectrum of the OWC technology, along with its potential high bit-rate and increased physical link security, motivated researchers to consider OWC for IoT solutions. In this paper, we survey the existing literature related to using OWC technology in the IoT domain. We present the background and preliminaries of the IoT and OWC domains to understand how the OWC fits in the IoT architecture. Then we perform a comprehensive survey of literature related to the use of OWC technology in IoT applications. We highlight and summarize the major papers and experiments in the literature to provide researchers a jump-start to tap into the domain of OWC in IoT using the systemic and detailed survey presented in this paper.

Estimating the number of drones at the entrance of a honey bee hive using machine learning tools

There are three types of bee in a honey bee hive: one queen which is in charge of laying eggs and controlling the population of the hive, a large number of worker bees that are all female and hold various responsibilities to maintain the entire hive, and a small number of drones (about 2-3%) that are male and their sole job is to mate with queens and spread the genetics of their hive in rare successful mating flights. There are various reasons for having a larger than normal number of drones which may cause a hive to collapse. Among the reasons for having too many drones are: a bad queen or a worker bee laying unfertilized eggs. It is important that the number of drones be monitored carefully as that can provide a good indication of the health of a hive. In order to monitor the number of drones, we use a hive monitoring system called Beemon that is created in the Visual and Image Processing (VIP) lab in our …

Beemon: An IoT-based beehive monitoring system

Beekeepers have experienced significant losses to the population of their hives in recent years due to a phenomenon that was once referred to as the Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD). In the past couple of decades, there have been some efforts to determine the causes of this disaster and how they can be addressed. Some of the research has relied on the data that the beekeepers collect manually from their hives. Some of the more recent efforts have analyzed audio and video recordings obtained at the hives to better understand the behavior of bees and determine health status of the hives. Such research requires quality audio, video, and other sensor data captured using a reliable system. To make this practical, the system should be inexpensive and with minimal disruption to the bees’ natural behavior at their hives. Moreover, such a system should be capable of providing insights and warnings to facilitate early …

Low-Cost UFSOOK-Based Optical Camera Communication Link for IoT Applications

Internet-of-Things (IoT) solutions require a large number of low-power devices being connected to the internet. Most existing wireless IoT solutions rely on radio frequency (RF) technologies for communication. The RF spectrum is becoming more congested and limited by interference. This motivated researchers to explore new technologies operating at different bands of the spectrum, one of which is the Optical Wireless Communication (OWC) technology. In OWC, a light beam from a laser diode (LD) or a Light Emitting Diode (LED) is modulated and transmitted in the free-space. One of the subfields of OWC technologies is Optical Camera Communication (OCC), in which a camera is used as a receiver to detect the modulated light. The bitrate of an OCC link depends on the frame rate of the receiving camera, and thus any low-cost OCC link will be limited in bitrate. A low bitrate OCC link can be useful for …
