The Californian economy is heavily dependent upon agriculture, which provides about $82 billion per year, as well as 760,000 total jobs. Much of this industry is dependent on the humble honeybee. Currently, farmers must maintain hundreds of hives, making maintenance an incredibly difficult task. BeeAware aims to help farmers by offering an automated health monitoring system. An autonomous vehicle will fly from hive to hive using computer vision, taking measurements of the sound emanating from each hive, and using DSP analysis to quickly find a rough measure of the health of each hive.
