ABSTRACT
With incidents like nuclear tragedies in concern, it is essential that the nuclear power plants are monitored on regular basis for any irregularities in ionizing radiation levels. Irrespective of leakage proof measures being deployed in the plant, ensuring the safety of these measures are necessary. Usage of UAVs in this scenario is being proposed in this work. The UAV deployed will map the entire environment following a unique path planning algorithm and monitor the environment with onboard radiation sensor. If in case any irregularities are detected, the positional coordinates are flagged, and the A* algorithm is implemented to generate the shortest path between the starting point, and the flagged coordinates, which is considered as the destination coordinates. The UAV is made to traverse the shortest path along with maintaining stability of the system while traversing.
