Title

Development of an Autonomous Mobile Robot for Radiation Source Detection Using Neural Networks

Abstract

This paper presents the design of an autonomous mobile robot to map out the radiation sources on a contaminated surface. This involves simulation of a mobile robot with sensors and the radiation sources on a surface. The basic search criteria are dependent on the strength of the source and distance it is from the robot. A neural network is developed to navigate the mobile robot to the radiation sources. This paper provides an alternative to human involvement in detection and identification of radiation contamination. Preliminary simulation results are promising and are presented in the paper.
