Wireless Sensor Networks to Control Radiation Levels

Wireless Sensor Networks to Control Radiation Levels

April 19th, 2011 - David Gascón, Marcos Yarza

The creation of the Radiation Sensor Board has been motivated by the nuclear disaster in Fukushima after the unfortunate earthquake and tsunami struck Japan. We want to help authorities and security forces to measure the levels of radiation of the affected zones without compromising the life of the workers. For this reason we have created an autonomous battery powered Geiger Counter which can read the radiation levels automatically and send the information in real time using wireless technologies like ZigBee and GPRS.
