Radiation effects on robotic systems

Lead academic: Professor Klaus McDonald-Maier and Professor Tom Scott
Partner lead: University of Essex, University of Bristol                                                                                                    Industry collaboration: NNL, NASA JPL, NPL and STFC/RAL

Work package two will experimentally investigate how sensors and associated microelectronic integrated circuits and software deteriorate with radiation exposure and develop new ways of modelling this degradation to i) predict sensor and embedded systems performance at different dose rates; and ii) embed arising ‘noise’ models into high level vision/perception algorithms of WP5 to improve robustness.
