Unlike traditional monitoring technologies, where a single or few static sensors are placed in the area, the advent of mobile sensor networks has enabled the use of heterogeneous sets of simple and low power sensors, distributed over a wide-range area to monitor hostile and remote environments. In this project, we are investigating the capability of a set of autonomous unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) as a mobile sensor network to address several existing problems in the nuclear industry named as game changers: 1- Physical asset management, 2-Plant characterisation, 3- Condition monitoring and inspection.
