    3Bee Oases: Where Biodiversity Meets Technology

    3Bee's Biodiversity Oases represent the perfect fusion of nature and technology: they are physical and digital places that allow for the preservation and regeneration of biodiversity. Urban and agroforestry habitats that serve as refuges for pollinators and native flora: they are created in areas and soils of low biodiversity located throughout European countries. Businesses can become custodians of these spaces, implementing measurable biodiversity conservation projects and engaging their stakeholders at the same time. Through IoT technology, project data converges in the virtual oasis: anyone can thus monitor the corporate Biodiversity Oasis in real-time and stay updated on its actual impact. But what makes these oases even more unique? The innovative technologies by 3Bee that populate them. Let's discover what they are and their role within 3Bee's Biodiversity Oases.

    Flora 3Bee

    Flora: 3Bee's Technology in Collaboration with ESA

    Flora is a neural network system developed in collaboration with the European Space Agency (ESA) that analyzes plant diversity and the potential biodiversity of the ecosystem based on the Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI). Using ESA's high-resolution Sentinel-II satellite data, we can define land cover and plant species with an 8m x 8m resolution. We accurately assess the floral diversity in an area, as well as the pollinator abundance and potential nectar production. This way, 3Bee provides partners with a clear understanding of the potential habitat of their site or reference area.

    Spectrum 3Bee

    Spectrum: technology that "listens" to pollinators

    Spectrum is an IoT sensor that "listens" to the environment, enabling the detection and classification of biodiversity based on frequency, identifying specific species such as bees, pollinating insects, and birds. The device is easy to install and self-sustains through an integrated solar panel. The battery can last up to 2 months even without sunlight. It requires no maintenance, and data is automatically collected and sent to the cloud via integrated 2G/4G connectivity. Flora and Spectrum are the technologies deployed by 3Bee to perform "biodiversity calculation" with the Element-E certified biomonitoring protocol.

    Hive-Tech: Biomonitoring Technology

    Hive-Tech is an IoT system applied to beehives, collecting biometric information from the bee colony and analyzing the environment's quality. The device gathers all relevant colony data (weight, temperature, humidity, sound intensity), which are then analyzed using artificial intelligence to determine the apiary's health. Data from the device can be integrated with lab sampling and analysis to detect the presence of pesticides or heavy metals. Thanks to Hive-Tech, we monitor environmental parameters useful for analyzing the surrounding biodiversity and the health of pollinators, with the goal of creating a network of sentinels throughout Europe.

    Polly X

    Polly X: the shelter for solitary bees

    Polly X is the shelter for solitary bees (osmies): an IoT device that monitors a range of important environmental indicators. In addition to ambient temperature, the system assesses air quality. Air quality data include the concentration of particulate matter in the air, which can have adverse effects on human health and the environment. Eleven quantities are monitored, including density, number concentration, and average particle size in nanometers, including PM10 and PM2.5. As with Hive-tech, data can be monitored in real time and transparently through the 3Bee app, and know whether the air we breathe daily is healthy.

    Technology and Monitoring: Innovation for Biodiversity

    In 3Bee's Biodiversity Oases, technology merges with nature to ensure the protection and regeneration of ecosystems. What makes them unique is the use of advanced technologies to monitor and track the impact of these areas: an innovative approach that allows for evaluating the effectiveness of conservation strategies, identifying potential threats, and making improvements as needed. The collected data, monitored, tracked, and transparent, can also be incorporated into the company's sustainability report and thus represent a valuable resource for businesses. Join our mission to conserve and protect biodiversity and contribute to the largest biodiversity study project, which is in steep decline. Together, we can make a difference, thanks to technology. Start your journey to protect biodiversity with 3Bee.

    Voices from the Oases 3Bee

    "Voices from the Oases": 3Bee's playlist for biodiversity

    In anticipation of World Habitat Day 2023, 3Bee is launching "Voices from the Oases," the first and only playlist available on Spotify, dedicated to the preservation of biodiversity by playing the unique sounds of pollinators recorded by our proprietary technology, Spectrum. The project is accompanied by a special campaign that 3Bee has organized with the support of Metro 5 Milano: in the Milano Porta Garibaldi and Lotto stations, until October 15, 2023, there will be over 50 billboards entirely dedicated to pollinating insects, the precious guardians of biodiversity. Travelers will have the opportunity to immerse themselves in a true musical exhibition dedicated to the theme, symbolizing an urgent call to action to protect our fragile ecosystem. Biodiversity loss is indeed an urgent emergency to address precisely because it is not monitored.
