Description

Detect Alpha, Beta and Gamma radiation integrating any Geiger Tube which works in the range 400V - 1000V and read this levels using Arduino. As well as from the terminal, the radiation levels can be shown using different actuators:

    - Piezo: it allows us to hear the typical "chirp" common in the radioactivity counters
    - Leds: 3 green and 2 red let easily to show low, medium and high levels
    - LCD: it displays the counts per minute (cpm) and the equivalent absorbed energy levels in Servants (µSV/h).

NOTE:
- This version comes without the Geiger tube. A version with a Geiger tube already soldered and "ready to use" is available here:
Radiation Sensor Board for Arduino + Geiger Tube
- In order to test the Geiger Counter you can get Vaseline Glass Bead as a complement in the order options.
- There is a little switch below the LCD you must switch on to use the board.
- The piezo produces a constant very low noise when the board is on, besides the typical "chirp"

This tutorial allows the user to know radiation levels moving a servo like an analog meter, changing the RGB LED color and showing it on the LCD.

This project can be developed with Arduino or Intel Galileo. It is also compatible with Raspberry Pi using the Raspberry Pi to Arduino shields connection bridge.

The idea behind the Raspberry Pi to Arduino shields connection bridge is to allow to use any of the shields, boards and modules designed for Arduino in Raspberry Pi.

It includes also the possibility of connecting digital and analog sensors, using the same pinout of Arduino but with the power and capabilities of Raspberry.

The current tutorial explains how to take the most of the Galileo board by using on it the Arduino and Raspberry Pi shields and modules designed by Cooking Hacks

Galileo comes with a single-core 32-bit, 400MHz Quark SoC X1000 processor, supports 3.3 or 5 volt shields and has an Ethernet and USB port. Compatible with Windows, Mac OS and Linux, the software of Galileo also has support for the Arduino shield ecosystem.
