6 pagesDate: October 22, 2021


Minimization of the dose load on personnel of nuclear facilities is an important task. This work focuses on the possibilities of reducing the accumulated dose rate using augmented reality technology. The concept of a system for visualizing the distribution of the radiation background in a workroom located in the educational laboratory of the Department of Theoretical and Experimental Physics of Nuclear Reactors at National Research Nuclear University MEPhI is proposed. The workroom contains subcritical experimental facilities with sources of ionizing radiation. The system allows avoiding places of increased radiation, thereby minimizing the dose load. The concept is implemented in the form of an Android application made on Unreal Engine 4. The application creates a multi-colored fog, the color of which at each point depends on the dose rate of gamma radiation.

Keyphrases: Augmented Reality, dose rate, Unreal Engine, visualization
