Professor Jong-seo Chai from the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering has been selected for the Ministry of Science and ICT's leading research center (CRC) new project in 2023. The project, titled "Metaverse-Based Radiation Safety ICT Research Center," will conduct groundbreaking research on fully visualizing radiation for the first time in the world. The goal is to implement radiation data measured in a specific space into virtual reality or mixed reality and visualize it using metaverse technologies such as AR and VR. This aims to provide a realistic radiation map.
Creating accurate and reliable models of radiation levels has been a challenging task in academia, requiring vast amounts of data collection and complex calculations. To pursue research on radiation visualization based on metaverse, the research team will explore innovative approaches to visual representation based on engineering technologies for safety.
The team aims to establish a new approach to radiation safety by securing independent technology that combines efficiency and stability in radiation work and utilizing radiation visualization technology. This is expected to contribute to the safe utilization of radiation in our society, including public health, radiation safety, and safety education.
Professor Jong-seo Chai, who oversees the research, stated, "By creating detailed radiation maps, even in national emergencies such as radiation terrorism, we will be able to effectively prepare and plan for such situations."
