QuickApp - Radiation Monitor ​☢️​


SmartHomeEddy
 Share

Question

The Radiation Monitor collects radiation levels from all available stations around the world and shows 5 nearest stations to your location and one station with highest current readings and one station with the highest 24 hour average readings. The QuickApp uses the location (latitude and ongitude) of your Homecenter to measure the distance to the stations and to get the nearest stations. The bearings in degrees from your location to the stations is shown. Next to the measurements, the five nearest reactors are shown. The languages English, French, Polish and Duth are supported. 

 

Thanks to @Sankotronic for his work for his HC2 Virtual Device version and ideas.

The main device shows the nearest measurement μSv/h. There are Child Devices for:

  • Nearest sensor 24h average μSv/h
  • 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th nearest sensor measurement with the 24 average in the log text
  • Nearest maximum measurement
  • Nearest maximum 24h average measurement

 

The nearest five reactors are retrieved once at startup of the QuickApp or at the next interval if you click on the button. 

[email protected] is a Polish science project using the distributed computing capabilities of the BOINC platform. The main goal of the project is to create a free and continuously updated map of radiation levels available for everyone, by gathering information about gamma radiation using sensors connected to the computers of volunteers willing to participate in the project. Project is completely non-commercial, participating will be free of charge (excluding cost of detector) and the software will be licensed under the GNU General Public License (GPL).

 

μSv/h: The sievert (symbol: Sv) is a unit in the International System of Units (SI) intended to represent the stochastic health risk of ionizing radiation.

 

In land navigation, a 'bearing' is ordinarily calculated in a clockwise direction starting from a reference direction of 0° and increasing to 359.9 degrees. Measured in this way, a bearing is referred to as an azimuth by the US Army but not by armies in other English speaking nations, which use the term bearing.

 

The human population is continuously exposed to ionizing radiation from several natural sources (cosmic and terrestrial contributions). For most individuals, exposure to natural sources exceeds that from all man-made (artificial) sources combined. The man-made sources arise from peaceful (e.g. medical use, energy generation, and associated fuel cycle facilities, radioisotope production, waste management) and military purposes (nuclear tests and their fallout or radioactive release, nuclear explosions).

 

Radiation levels: 
Green: Radiation up to 0.3 μSv/h
Yellow: Radiation between 0.3 and 0.8 μSv/h 
Red: Radiation above 0.8 μSv/h

 

1.14 µSv/h - Shelter population
5.7 µSv/h - Evacuation of population
11.4 µSv/h - Issue Iodine tablets
0.114 µSv/h - Max daily dose == 1 mSv/year

 

Reverse Geocoding by Nominatim
Reverse geocoding generates an address from a latitude and longitude. The reverse geocoding API does not exactly compute the address for the coordinate it receives. It works by finding the closest suitable OSM object and returning its address information. This may occasionally lead to unexpected results.

    Hello. Thanks for this release @SmartHomeEddy. It works perfectly. Would it be possible to have the choice of sensors to display? Those closest to us, for example?


    Thanks @fredokl

     

    It should work like that. overwrite the quickapp variable for longitude and latitude. I think my settings are in there. I can’t delete them, because the will generate automatically. 
     

    You can als install a (second) quickapp and fill in the longitude and latitude manually from an area in the world you like to monitor.

  • For the HC2 platform Sankotronic created the Advanced Radiation Monitor (ARM) Virtual Device. I chatted with Zoran and he is very busy with other nice creations. I would like to have a HC3 QuickApp too, so I made a first version of the HC3 QuickApp. 

     

    It is more like a working prototype, there are still things to do, like: 

    City and Country for all 5 sensors, not only the first one
    Show difference new value to previous value with ↑↓=
    Maybe Child devices for 5 sensors: sample and 24h average measurements

     

    But let's enjoy this first version.

    Another fantastic app! Unfortunately very topical in the current situation of the world.

    Hopefully the quickapp will never display deviating values....

     

    I will definitely install it, thanks!

  • Thanks Peter

     

    I have added the .fqax file to upload it to your HC3. It is for now an encrypted file, just as an experiment if that works also in this HC3 firmware.

    I don't think it will come that far, but it is always nice to know what is going on in the world, also with radiation levels.

    Thank you very much for this version of "Radiation Monitor".

    I had installed it on the HC2 and now on the HC3. Cool!

    It works perfectly with firmware 5.120.10.

  • In the next version, the cities and countries for all sensors in the labels will be added. 
     

    The Quickapp uses the latitude and longitude of your HC3, but ofcourse you can change them (in the quickapp variables) to a place on earth you would like to monitor. The 5 most close sensors will be searched and with the sensors with the worst sample and worst average shown in the labels. You can install the QuickApp also more than once to monitor nearby and a specific other place.

    I will not install something I can't see what is doing. This could create stability or/and security issues.

    Hello, 
    thank you for this new version. It works perfectly.
    Would it be possible to have a multilingual version? It's French that interests me.

    I've never done it, so I think I can. I will have a look at it.

    Hi @fredokl

     

    is this the right translation for French?
