New master thesis topics on intelligent bee hives

We have recently started recording large amounts of data from a beehive in Brussels in order to investigate whether we can detect patterns in this data that help us to both monitor the environment and the bee colony’s health. The aim of the research is twofold: to investigate whether we can use the bees as remote environmental sensors and to investigate whether, through monitoring the colony’s behavior, we can get advance warning of problems that may cause colony collapse (an increasingly worrying problem).

Two new MSc thesis topics have been added to the thesis page under "real world sensing".
