Bees and drones are working together to find landmines in Croatia

| |

Researchers from Croatia use drones and bees to detect landmines. The drones are used to track the bees and later locate the landmines’ location, keeping humans out of danger.

A group of researchers from Croatia, Bosnia, and Herzegovina has a new way to track the bees using cameras attached to drones. The bees locate the landmines while the drones fly above them, capturing data at the same time.

Once the mine locating session is done for the day, the footage from the drones is taken back and run through an AI program that can track the bees in the frame and figure out where they are hovering, telling the researchers where the landmines are, who then notify the authorities to remove or detonate the landmines safely.
