Path Planning Optimization Method Based on Genetic Algorithm for Mapping Toxic Environment Book Chapter Conference Paper uri icon


  • The ionizing radiation is used in the nuclear medicine field during the execution of diagnosis exams. The administration of nuclear radio pharmaceutical components to the patient contaminates the environment. The main contribution of this work is to propose a path planning method for scanning the nuclear contaminated environment with a mobile robot optimizing the traveled distance. The Genetic Algorithm methodology is proposed and compared with other approaches and the final solution is validated in simulated and real environment in order to achieve a closer approximation to reality.
