Research on bee mortality - Smart HOBOS helps here. The high-tech beehive of the Audi Environmental Foundation collects valuable data.
The Oak Forest project is going online. The oaks have been equipped with intelligent measuring and corresponding sensor technology for determining the interaction between density and the ecosystem performance of the trees.
Audi and we4bee start project on behavioural analysis of bees. Beehives transmit huge amounts of data (Big Data) on environmental influences.
The bee research by we4bee and supported by the Audi Environmental Foundation has collected billions of individual data points so far. The first scientific findings are now available.
The Greentech Festival took place in Berlin for the second time from September 16 to 18. Within the festival, the Audi Environmental Foundation could present some of its Greenovation projects.
We have all probably eaten algae at some point – wrapped around maki sushi or used as a thickening agent in instant meals. Algae, and microalgae in particular, have also been cultivated at the industrial level since the 1950s with the aim of preserving natural raw materials for a variety of areas of application.
Measuring an orchard meadows with drones - Audi Environmental Foundation supports innovative project using citizen science, big data and pattern recognition to preserve biodiversity.
Preventing plastic waste in our seas and creating new living space. The Audi Environmental Foundation is committed to this together with CLEAR RIVERS.
In Germany the curlew is one of the species threatened with extinction. Therefore years ago the “Landesbund für Vogelschutz” (LBV) initiated a project to protect the curlew population. The Audi Environmental Foundation is helping to finance a new telemetry system with stationary receivers that are being tested in the field to locate curlew families.
How are honeycombs built? What is the purpose of the bee dance? How does the bee colony super-organism operate? This and other questions about the honey bee (apis mellifera) are answered by Audi Environmental Foundation GmbH and the bee researcher Prof. Jürgen Tautz in their now published book „Die Erforschung der Bienenwelt“ (Exploring the World of the Bee). It sheds new light on the world of this insect species - from swarming right up to the environmental influences to which it is exposed.
Green power: Used laptop batteries become mobile power storages – Audi Environmental Foundation supports second-life battery research of start-up Nunam.
In the URBANFILTER project, the Audi Environmental Foundation and the TU of Berlin are developing filters for road gullies. Thus environmentally harmful particles such as tire wear particles do not end up in waterways.
The Audi Environmental Foundation and Audi do Brasil support the NGO Litro de Luz Brasil, which aims to give people in remote areas without electricity access to solar lighting. The project in the Amazon region, scheduled to start in the second quarter of 2022, will equip three villages with solar-powered lamp posts and hand lamps, thus improving people's quality of life.
