About Us

IntelliBeeHive is a University of Texas Rio Grande Valley project sponsored by the U.S. Department of Agriculture to monitor the honey bee's hive activity, environment, and intrusions. Honey bees play a crucial role in our environment and agriculture, and recently the honey bee population has been slowly decreasing! Our goal is to use machine learning to monitor the bee density and health of each individual hive through the use of video cameras and sensors. The data collected from our hives is fed directly to our servers and onto our webpage, thus providing us live data. You can Sign Up today to view our current data!

Live Feed and Data

For most apiculturists to know the status of their hives they must physically open each hive and look inside. IntelliBeeHive has cameras attached to the entrance of each hive. Using a convoluted neural network, our cameras can determine the number of bees entering and leaving the hive, detect any intruding pests, and pin point any parasites that have latched on to the honey bees. Above is a clip of our cameras collecting data on one of our hives located in Edinburg. The data collected is then fed to our servers, where our users can view our honey bees live and data collected in graph or table form.

The above picture shows the entirety of the monitoring system before it is attached to the hive. Our monitoring system uses a mesh frame attached to the bottom of they system where our camera and sensors are positioned on top to record bee activity and hive conditions.
