Albert Einstein once said that if the bees disappeared off the face of the Earth, man would only have four years left to live. Engineers all over the world work on developing an e-bee. PIAP takes one step further, instead of replacing the bees with robots, we want to provide a non-invasive support to the bees, monitor them, listen to the hive life and analyse data provided by the insects from their environment. The hive instrumentation will protect the bees against extinction and may be a breakthrough in a pro-ecological approach of the engineers to fauna and flora protection. Maciej Cedar, Secretary of the PIAP Scientific Board discusses the project details during the Science Station broadcast in the Polish Radio.
