GammaPix™ works with your smartphone's camera to detect radioactivity. The app allows you to measure radioactivity levels wherever you are and to be assured that your local environment is safe.Ã‚Â The app can be used for the detection of radioactivity in everyday life such as exposure on airplanes, from medical patients or from contaminated products.Ã‚Â You can also use GammaPix™ to detect hazards from unusual events, such as nuclear accidents of the kind experienced in 2011 in Fukushima, Japan, or a terrorist attack by a dirty bomb or quietly placed radioactive silent sources.

The GammaPix™ patented technology is based on analysis software that operates on the images produced by a surveillance camera, webcam or smartphone to measure the local gamma radiation exposure at the device. The technology is sensitive enough to detect, within seconds, dangerously high levels of radiation so that you can quickly get away! You can also use the software to collect data over longer times, from minutes to hours, to detect weaker radioactivity sources or normal background radioactivity. Show Less
Monitor radiation sources with your Android device and GammaPix™ software. This app is perfect to keep track of radioactive sources in hospitals, food processing plants and industries where radiation is used.
Coming soon: Once a radioactive area has been found, upload your data, log onto our user forums, and compare readings with others in your area to help establish which areas are safe or unsafe. Hundreds of smartphones with GPS locators could instantly map radiation levels through an entire city. In addition, these readings will also be useful to first responders in dealing with a potentially hazardous situation.
Learn about natural radiation variations in your home and surroundings; you can even measure cosmic ray showers from outer space. Measure the usual low levels of exposure and track natural exposure changes due to variations in altitude and locations.
