INTERNET OF BEES: REMOTE CONTROL OF POLLINATORS BASED ON CYBER-PHYSICAL SYSTEM USING ENVIRONMENT SENSORS
Abstract: The precipitous decline in global honeybee populations, primarily the species Apis Mellifera, poses a significant threat to biodiversity and agriculture, with the European Union Parliament reporting that about 79% of the world’s food supply is dependent on these pollinators. Factors contributing to this decline include disease, theft, high maintenance demands, and a lack of technological innovation in beekeeping. Addressing this concern, this paper introduces the "Internet of Bees," an innovative cyber-physical system designed to remotely monitor bee colonies. Central to this system is the use of temperature sensors for the early detection of anomalies within hives, thus contributing to efforts in preventing bee extinction. This paper explores the development, implementation, and potential impact of this technology. By harnessing the power of data collection and analysis, the Internet of Bees aims not only to offer a real-time monitoring solution but also to increase awareness and knowledge about bee conservation. The paper's findings demonstrate the system’s effectiveness in anomaly detection and underline the vital role of technology in environmental and wildlife stewardship, paving the way for new avenues in apiary management and conservation efforts.
