Current beekeeping practices generate a lot of stress for bees and cause mortality and depopulation of hives, furthermore, they are a huge cost for beekeepers that for the biggest bee farms it can exceed €100k every year. This is why we designed HiveGuard: a device for automated beehives monitoring, equipped with a night vision camera and a recognition algorithm based on image processing by Deep Learning technology. Our device, for example, specifically identifies the type of brood, larvae, dangerous disease like the foulbrood, number of bees, the activity of the queen, stocks of honey and pollen or things like that inside of hives and notifies their presence to beekeepers through a dedicated application in the beekeepers' smartphone, without going to the apiary, opening the hives and causing huge stress to the bees.
Indeed, our competitors can only detect the last phase of the problem, instead, thanks to our, innovative technology we can detect specific problems well in advance of t...

Indeed, our competitors can only detect the last phase of the problem, instead, thanks to our, innovative technology we can detect specific problems well in advance of them, in this way we can treat the root of the problem and eliminate it.
