Development of an Integrated Ionizing Radiation Detection and Alert System

Given the professional requirements of today’s society, workers of various professions, are exposed to high levels of harmful radiations, which increases the risk of contracting severe illnesses. To efficiently monitor the exposure to dangerous ionizing radiations, this project presents a system that analyzes in real-time the exposure to harmful radiation and alerts the user when the daily exposure limit is reached. It integrates a new Arduino-based detector fully developed for this purpose and communicates with a mobile application designed to analyse and record all working sessions. The result is a revolutionary prototype that introduces a new paradigm in the work safety conditions of these professionals, with the objective of reducing the associated health risks and save lives.
