Post-Fukushima: Using LabVIEW and CompactRIO to Monitor Radiation

KURAMA-II’s In-Vehicle Device

"KURAMA-II would probably have taken one to two months longer to develop if we had not used LabVIEW."

- Dr. Minoru Tanigaki, Division of Quantum Beam Material Science Research Reactor Institute, Kyoto University

The Challenge:
Improving an in-vehicle radiometry system by decreasing the number of parts, making the system more compact, automating the measurements, and completing development with a tight deadline so the device could be deployed to assist in the restoration of the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant.

The Solution:
Automating and miniaturizing the existing Kyoto University RAdiation MApping (KURAMA) system using NI LabVIEW system design software and NI CompactRIO hardware. We shortened development time by reusing the original KURAMA software for the KURAMA-II, even though it used different hardware.
