More than just lighting: Bluetooth mesh and precision beekeeping technology
Stream: New applications for Bluetooth; developments & considerations
The introduction of Bluetooth mesh has meant a new wave of exciting applications for the technology, compared to the point-to-point communication which it is typically known for. One of these applications has been created by Nectar, who are using Bluetooth to monitor and aid the world’s dwindling bee population. Data on swarming, honey production and queen activity is fed through a network of sensors to the concerned Beekeeper, who can protect and advance their hives. Hear their story here, including the technicalities of mesh implementation and plans for the future.
