In 2019 HSB Living Lab and TietoEVRY started a project called BeeLab. The overall goal of the project was to create a network of connected digital beehives, and the project intentions where to provide an even better understanding of bees' health and how to take care of them. In order to tackle these challenges, there was a need for a scalable, national and global Cloud environment.Read more about TietoEVRY being positioned as a leader in four public cloud services by ISG
TietoEVRY has installed an IoT Gateway and different types of sensors in all hives and then connected those to a scalable, national and global Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud platform environment.
TietoEVRY is offering project management, development services and overall operation expertise from our specialists in the Nordics, combined with global delivery capabilities.

All hives are connected to TietoEVRY's cloud platform, AWS Cloud Service, to collect comparable data to help researchers gain a better understanding of bees and their communities. The connected beehives will also make it easier for beekeepers to monitor their hives.
All data is coordinated into the cloud, and paired with AI, the information can be analyzed quickly and in real time.
“It’s great that we can connect more hives in TietoEVRY's cloud platform and collect comparable data to help researchers gain a better understanding of bees and their communities” - Emma Sarin, Project Manager for HSB Living Lab.
HSB Living Lab is a research and demonstration arena including homes for students and guest researchers. HSB Living Lab is run by 12 partners to create a solid collaboration arena for new knowledge with a focus on social, economic and environmental sustainability. The building is located on the Chalmers campus area in Gothenburg and was inaugurated in the fall of 2016. TietoEVRY is an IT partner in the project to develop smart and innovative solutions for tomorrow's housing.Read more about HSB Living Lab
HSB Living Lab has all their data from the connected beehives coordinated into the cloud, ensuring contribution to research and conservation of biodiversity.
HSB Living Lab keeps most of their IT-operations in the cloud, meaning they can scale their solutions and be more efficient in the future.
By freeing up resources, HSB Living Lab can now innovate and test, putting them in the forefront of cloud technology.
