Apitronics

Apitronics is a wireless platform that enables farmers to develop sensor networks to meet their specific needs through the use of open hardware. It includes a base station, or “Hive,” that coordinates a swarm of field-ready “Bees” which collect data and control switches. Each Bee contains a solar charger, SD card, GPS headers, XBee headers and water proof plugs. The Hive contains a Linux computer that saves the data locally and provides data within a locally hosted web page. Farmers can even set up triggers so they are alerted if they forget to water, if temperatures get too hot, etc.
