BeeChecker enables beekeepers to maintain and remotely monitor the health of their beehives. Bees are an essential piece to the ecosystem as they pollinate plants and produce goods we rely on daily.

BeeChecker is comprised of two devices–one located in the hive and one out of the hive. These devices run off Arduino and XBee to remotely transmit information about the conditions inside the hive. The device measures the weight of the hive, the different frequencies that bees emit —which can help to know if they are helping the queen. The sensor outside of the hive measures humidity, temperature, pollution, and GPS to map out the location of each hive.

The data collected from both sensor modules is transferred to a mobile app that gives the Beekeepers the information necessary to raise healthier bees.
