Test suite of videos
The goal is to have a suite of videos made in different lighting conditions with different levels of activity. The number of bees departing and arriving will have to be manually counted. These videos would be used as a basis for evaluating the counting algorithms.
These two 30 second videos were taken with the entrance camera on July 7, 2014 at 3:30 and 6:00 pm during a period of weight gain. This was probably not during a nectar flow but looks like robbing as there is no evaporation at night.
These videos were made with a Logitech HD920 camera using ffmpeg/ffserver with the following settings:

This video is of the front of the hive. It gives an idea of what the entrance camera looks like:
