BeeAnd. Me, startup students of Electrical Engineering
' Device developed by beekeepers to continuous monitoring bag. Using sensors provide information about the weight of the hive ie. The input of honey, temperature, humidity. "
BeeAnd. I was Montenegrin startup founded in 2016 by young researchers Elme Hot and Alija Dervic, students of Electrical Engineering, University of Montenegro. Elma is a graduate student and engaged in the first Montenegrin Center of Excellence in Bioinformatics (BIO-ICT). Ali after completion of master's study and engagement in the BIO-ICT Center continued doctoral studies at the Technical University of Vienna, where he engaged in the Institute emcee. \ r \ n \ r \ n \ r \ n \ r \ Nelma and Ali are on their the idea began to work at the end of 2015, because they wanted to make a smart scale in order to facilitate the work of Elmina grandfather who lives in Bijelo Polje, and that their bees during the summer moves on Zabljak. During the development of the idea they realized that the idea could expand. the story further developed through participation in the startup competitions, competitions for innovation as well as through presentations at scientific conferences. After winning the same, get the prizes, but also the motivation to actively will go to the development of ideas. \ r \ n \ r \ n \ r \ n \ r \ nAndroid devices that have been developed allows beekeepers continuous monitoring hives. Using sensors receive information on the weight of the hive ie. The input of honey, temperature, humidity. Through information on the weather conditions at the place where the hive beekeeper can more accurately create an image of the conditions in which there are bees. Also, precise beehive weight knows how honey collected by bees. It is interesting that the sensor device using the measured sound volume and frequencies bees. In the event of changes in the sound compared to the usual, a beekeeper at the time were informed that something was wrong. \ R \ n \ r \ Nelma and Ali note that during the patenting of design, in which they are particularly proud. The idea is that the device is set as the base of the hive. It is worth noting that the device has a battery power and autonomy than two years. \ R \ n \ r \ nVrlo is easy to use, you only need to include the push of a button. Programmed so that it is immediately ready to beekeeper make information available. Since the device is a group of IoT solutions possible rescheduling of the same through the application to the end user. \ R \ n \ r \ n \ r \ n \ r \ n \ r \ n \ r \ n \ r \ Ndaka, data sent to the cloud where they are stored to be available later for different types of analysis. It is possible to monitor trends change parameters for scientific analysis. \ R \ n \ r \ nStudenti the whole system developed from scratch, and to consider their greatest advantage, because they are able to adapt to all on your device. How would the system be able to use and beekeepers who do not use smart mobile phones and computers, the device data with hives and sends SMS. \ R \ n \ r \ nAlso, one possibility is that in addition to the periodic sending of data, the device sends data by SMS each time the user requests it. Data on hives can be accessed through the Android application or through a Web application, which are very simple, but functional. \ R \ n \ r \ Nelma and Ali points out that there are a number of sensors and accessories that can be added to your device. The device can add alarms that react to movement near the hive, move the hive. Also, plans are in the future, adding that a probe to test between right next to the hive. \ R \ n \ r \ nPri visit their hive over to where the devices have to measure the amount of sucrose in the moisture and acidity of an extracted sample of honey. They believe that by adding these probes greatly assist beekeepers because they would often have to wear during the analysis, but to information about honey received currently. \ R \ n \ r \ n \ r \ n \ r \ Nelma and Ali were able to secure participation in the accelerator program Hub: raum Krakow. After this event are invited to be part of NB-IoT program of Deutsche Telekom. This IoT progam is for them was of paramount importance because they were in a position to cooperate with big companies such as Intel, Ericsson, Qualcomm and Huawei, and to use new technology among the first in the world. BeeAnd. me as an example of the use of this new technology was part of the presentation of Deutsche Telekom at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, which is one of the world's largest trade show of the mobile industry. \ R \ n \ r \ nAfter notable performances in Barcelona, BeeAnd. I was invited to participate in the Deutsche Telekom Internet of Things Summit in Bonn. At CeBIT, the world's largest information technology fair in Hanover, CEO of Deutsche Telekom, Tim Hotges presented by German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Japanese Prime Minister Abe Šinzou Montenegrin startup BeeAnd. me. On that occasion, Chancellor Merkel expressed her interest in the innovative project of Montenegrin students who have succeeded in the application of new technologies to develop the so-called. "Smart hive" and allow beekeepers to obtain all the necessary information about their bees in a desired period of time. \ R \ n \ r \ nIn the past year in addition to the events in which they participated worked very hard to improve your product, so that, in cooperation with partners from Austria developed and stored for a pilot project that will be organized at 50 locations in Austria. \ R \ n \ r \ Nelma and Ali explained that in their first step in the startup world needed desire, creativity and courage, but immediately after the first steps were needed to confirm its desire to work, effort and dedication. They say the international attention and sympathy in particular deserve because they come from a small country like Montenegro. \ R \ n \ r \ nOhrabruju all students in Montenegro, especially students of technical universities, to focus on the launch of its business or startup: "We call on all people who want to be innovative and entrepreneurial, to contact us for advice and support. The young successful people are the best ambassadors of our country. We believe that our story in a nice way to promote Montenegro and that Angela Merkel, Chancellor of Germany and Prime Minister of Japan, Abe Šinzou remember how young people from small and beautiful Montenegro with a great idea and the plan came to CeBIT. "\ R \ n \ r \ n \ r \ n \ r \ n \ r \ n \ r \ n \ r \ n" The ecosystem is very important, a community that helps you is very important when starting off on an exciting journey of establishing startup. We are a small country but it is also our startup community is small, but very close, and can be a good support all the courageous young people. We invite everyone to get involved in this story and they support innovative young people as they've always done BIO-ICT Center of Excellence, Digitize. Me and Crnogorski Telekom, "say the young researchers, Elma and Ali. \ R \ n \ r \ nBIO-ICT, the first Center of Excellence in Montenegro at the University of Montenegro, creates an environment that encourages young researchers that, in addition to its regular activities, develop their innovative capacity, expand their field of interest, break new ground and engage in extremely challenging and new ventures. In this way, the BIO-ICT Center provides them with all necessary support and the form of mentoring and advice of experienced professors and researchers, space and modern equipment to them is always at their disposal, the possibilities dotatnog training in the country and abroad. \ R \ n \ r \ n \ r \ n \ r \ n \ r \ nIf you want to exchange opinions or questions about this topic, please contact the author: bio-ict @ ac. me
