Abstract: Honey bees are an important part of our everyday lives. Many foods we eat on a daily basis are dependent on some form of pollination. These foods include nuts, berries, fruits, and vegetables. In recent years, the population of honey bees has been declining due to a phenomenon called Colony Collapse Disorder. Research on this disorder is lacking and there is still much to learn. This thesis provides the details on research and development of a system that manages the data acquisition of one or more honey bee hives. This system could be used by researchers and beekeepers to monitor their beehives. The system allows users to setup parameters on various data acquisition components. The basic hive data will include audio, temperature, and humidity from inside the hive, as well as video recording the beehive entrance. The system (BeeCon) also provides basic analysis options that the hive owners can use to monitor and determine the health of their bees.
