BeeHero, an Israeli startup that uses sensors to collect big data from beehives, is increasing bee-related research across California, USA, with 14 new research stations.

The data from each station determines beehive health and predicts crop yields and the company is posting free daily updates on pollination progress to help beekeepers and almond growers.

Each research station consists of bee counters (to measure real flying times and the actual number of bee foraging trips), hive scales (to track nectar-foraging activity), weather sensors, cameras, and BeeHero’s patented inhive sensors. They will allow additional growers, beekeepers, agronomists, and ag retailers around the world access to BeeHero’s data.

The company provides beekeepers with sensors that measure sound, humidity, and temperature in the hive for AI analysis to detect potential problems.
