Sensaris Launches Mobile Phone Based Global Radiation Sensor Network

Share Article

Sensaris introduces its Bluetooth and GPS enabled Geiger counter, the RemPod, for personal monitoring and real time radiation mapping using mobile phones and social networking.

Sensaris adds radiation monitoring to its Senspod platform. Recently some areas with high radiation levels have been detected by citizens in Japan and it is clear that a large number of Geiger counters are necessary to keep track of safe areas over time.

The RemPod has been designed to provide such a service to citizens and municipalities as it measures alpha, beta and gamma radiation and GPS coordinates, and either stores the data on a memory card or displays the values in real time on mobile phones via Bluetooth transmission.

Users can view the data in real time on their phones and also share the data using geosocial networking tools. The integration with mapping and social networks enables rapid sharing of safe areas; people wanting to know more about the safety of their immediate area can access the web based visualization interface using any device with a web browser.

For fast deployment several devices can also be simultaneously connected to WiFi or 3G networks. Since RemPods are also designed to store measurements in a built in microSD memory card, they can record data even in conditions with no network access such as ships at sea for example. The sensors will also be valuable tools to monitor soil decontamination and to then keep track of the evolution around storage facilities.

“Safecast in Japan paved the way for citizen centric radiation monitoring but we wanted to broaden compatibility with smartphones and simplify data sharing via social networks. We are very pleased that the initial testing of RemPods by daily users in 5 countries has been successfully completed both from an accuracy and a software ease of use point of view. Senspods are our first building block for social, local, mobile environmental monitoring.” declared Michaël Setton, founder and CEO of Sensaris. The device is now available for order on the company’s website :
