Waggle Dance Decoding

The Waggle Dance team uses computer vision to analyze the patterns of bees in a hive and specifically identify the “waggle dance” motion of individual bees. Identifying key characteristics of the waggle dance like the angle and duration are vital, because this information can show the direction and distance of flowers the bees aim to pollinate and the amounts of honey in the hive. Further decoding the waggle dance with a precise machine learning model can help beekeepers and researchers many years into the future.
