Original Abstract

The paper describes a method for acquiring and processing data concerned with a radiation situation in a pre-defined region of interest with a goal of localizing point sources present in the region. The acquisition underlies the robotic platform Orpheus-X4 equipped with a pre-cise navigation module and gamma radiation detectors, a path planning involves Boustrophe-don decomposition. The processing is based on the Gauss-Newton method, a contribution of the paper consists in a way to provide the method correct input data. Introduced algorithms were verified experimentally. Although not all sources can be found using the chosen equip-ment, in case of successful localization the accuracy is not worse than 0.1 m.
