Well it has been a long wet summer but we are making progress on HiveSense. We are working on the iOS version of the mobile monitoring app and will be testing that over the next few months as we finalize the wiring of all the new hives at Algonquin College.

Over this time, we had the pleasure of being interviewed by Deborah MacAskill from the CBC Radio One. It was a great morning at the hives demonstrating and discussing what we have done and where we want to go. It was also entertaining to see Deborah kinda scared in the hives (don’t worry I was nervous my first time as well). Over the last year, I have learned to live with the bees and not to eat a banana due the pheromones your body will produce. Apparently they are the same as those produced by bees to signal a threat to the hive. I feel sorry for the first guy who figured this one out!

Over the next few months, we look forward to validating our new hardware boards and get the cameras capturing before the snow flies again.

This project is part of a joint initiative between our sister company TwelveDot Labs and Algonquin College. You can see more details on our HiveSense web site. If your interested in getting involved in the program please reach out to us on our contact page.
