We hope that none of our readers worry about radiation. However, if you need to track your radiation levels, thankfully you can do so with the help of our favorite his SBC. raspberry pi. Today, we’re introducing a potentially life-saving project created by Sboger. Using the Raspberry Pi Pico W, they Remote radiation monitor Sends current radiation levels over Wi-Fi.
The driving module behind this project is the GGreg20_V3 Geiger Counter module. The device can detect radiation levels using data that can be read by a separate module such as the Raspberry Pi Pico W. In this case, Sboger is using ESPHome to receive data from Pico W and process it into a useful gauge graphic.
In the project thread, Sboger explains how Geiger modules are tuned by manufacturers. You should consider this calibration number in your code to determine the baseline for background radiation. Once you know the normal levels for your environment, you can get the variance from that baseline to know when levels are higher than you need.
The hardware used in this project is very simple. It uses a GGreg20_V3 ionizing radiation Geiger counter connected to a Raspberry Pi Pico W. The ESP32 module is used to run ESPHome, a home assistant application that wirelessly manages data from Pico W and processes input from Geiger counters. A graphic used to measure radiation levels.
Sboger kindly shared details of the code used in this project, including a link to the ESPHome Home Assistant. GitHub A page detailing how to integrate the GGreg20_V3 Geiger Counter module. You can also view the setup instructions. Geiger counter It can be used with Arduino, but some modifications are required to use it with Pico W instead.
