Clemens Gruber is working on the Open Hive open source / open hardware beehive monitoring project. He engineered the Open Hive Bee Scale and Open Hive Shields and does a lot of research into sensors, how to make them behave and how to derive relevant information from their measurements.
He is currently building the Open Hive temperature array for making 3d images of temperature values to see how the bees move in the hive.
