(You cannot measure the radiation only by using this application program)
iPhone can be used as a radiation detector, as it is called Geiger counter, by connecting the voice output of the Pocket Geiger Counter with the microphone input.
For more information about Pocket Geiger Counter, see http://www.radiation-watch.org
Sensor: PIN photo diode x8 (reverse biased and shielded)
Detectable radiations: Beta and Gamma radiation
Measurement range: 0.05uSv/h~10mSv/h (Calibrated using Cs-137), 0.01cpm~300000cpm
Measuring time: about 5 minutes at the dose rate of 0.05uSv/h
Energy response: :662keV~1333keV

■ Data sent by the application
- Date and time
- Position (latitude, longitude)
- The value measurement (uSv/h, cpm)
* The following information is not intended to send.
- Personally identifiable information (such as device ID)
The data is uploaded by the application is never present, be open to the public.
During measurement, the battery consumption will be increased so that with the addition of GPS location information in the measured value.
Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
We are making the smart radiation detector that everyone can buy at a low price especially in and around Fukushima.
The project is supported by volunteer engineers, designers and scientists.
