Radiation shield for Raspberry Pi can detect Alpha, Beta and Gamma radiation, integrating any Geiger Tube which works in the range 400V - 1000V and reading these levels using Raspberry Pi. This version comes without the Geiger tube. A version with a Geiger tube already soldered is available here.
Note: The piezo produces a constant very low noise when the board is on, besides the typical "chirp".
Note: If you are looking for shields to add new capabilities to your Raspberry Pi, you can find them here.
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.
If you are interested in Internet of Things (IoT) or M2M projects check our open source sensor platform Waspmote which counts with more than 100 sensors available to use 'off the shelf', a complete API with hundreds of ready to use codes and a low consumption mode of just 0.7µA to ensure years of battery life.
