In response to recent biologists needs, we propose to lay the foundations of a stereo vision-based system for monitoring honeybees in 3D at the beehive entrance. In this context, this article highlights difficulties and introduces some solutions for problems related to the detection of the bees and tracking them in 3D under uncontrolled conditions. This study is a prerequisite for our next step that aims to detect and analyze behaviors of the bees based on their trajectories and additional… CONTINUE READING
