About Ivan Kanev, Sergey Petrov

For some years now we are observing a dramatic decline in bees, which play an essential role in our ecosystem. One-third of all our food depends on their pollination and their disappearance could be devastating for food production. Ivan Kanev and Sergey Petrov decided to join forces in order to find a solution to that problem. They came up with an intelligent beehive, equipped with sensors to detect vital parameters for a colony.

Their Smart Beehive Management System monitors the levels of temperature, humidity and weight. All data is recorded and analyzed in the cloud, sending information to the beekeepers to alarm them whenever a problem is detected.
