Autonomous Radiation Mapping

Coordinating university or institute

Lund University,



Project description

During commissioning, operation and decommissioning of nuclear power plants, particle accelerators and industries dealing with radioactive materials, there is a need to monitor radiation levels and isotope composition over large swathes of land surrounding the facilities. Ideally, this would be done regularly by an automated system which we are developing.
