The second B-GOOD project video is now on Youtube
A new video from the B-GOOD video series featuring experts working on the project was published on The B-GOOD project’s Youtube channel. The second video features experts from four research institutions who share their work within B-GOOD.
Coby van Dooremalen, Wageningen University and Research, elaborates on the collecting of data on the bee health status index (HSI) components by using a 3-tiered approach.
"Honeybees are extremely sensitive to vibrations. For that reason, we place vibration sensors inside the honeycomb and in this way we plug into the internet of pulsed vibrations through which honeybees communicate with each other.", says Martin Bencsik, Nottingham Trent University. "We think that there are numerous features of the colony that we can monitor in that way", elaborates the senior researcher.
Marten Schoonman, BEEP Foundation, speaks about the measurement system of honeybee colonies that is being developed and presents the BEEP base and BEEP app innovations that are being developed. Integrating these digital tools will further enhance the quality of hive measurement in beekeeping practices.
A digital twin of bee colonies that includes all important drivers for bee behavior is going to be implemented in the BEEP app, so that beekeepers would have access to small predictive models that would help them in their work, says Christopher John Topping, Aarhus University.
