The aim of my PhD research project is to analyse the challenges and opportunities related to the use of wireless communication in the nuclear industry, specifically when using wireless communication to deliver remote sensing in a high radiation area. It is envisaged that a technology demonstrator will be prototyped and evaluated as part of the research project.
The use of Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) within industry and agriculture is rapidly increasing. In the nuclear industry a considerable effort has been made to use wireless sensor networks for instrumentation and control. However there are some challenges related to the specific environment encountered in the nuclear decommissioning industry, which we need to address to demonstrate that it is possible to use wireless communication efficiently and securely.
ANTONIO DI BUONO BEng
Doctoral Research Student
Since the beginning of my university studies I have shown interest in nuclear energy, and for this reason I attended a Master’s degree in Nuclear Engineering at the University of Pisa. During my degree I spent six months at the University of Birmingham for my thesis work on the “Development
of a prototype drone for nuclear decommissioning and radiation surveys”.
Developing the next generation of nuclear decommissioning robotics research. Working in partnership with the nuclear sector and other universities around the UK and EU to reduce risk, accelerate productivity and reduce long term costs.
