APPLICATIONS OF TECHNOLOGY:
- Gamma ray imaging data analysis
- Tools are flexible for offline analysis as well as for real-time integrations
Researchers at Berkeley Lab have developed a novel radkit software suite (Python) that consists of three primary libraries: trajan, curie, and stark.
The trajan library provides the tools to analyze and manipulate data from lidar and inertial measurement unit (IMU) devices as well as trajectories from algorithms such as simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM). These components facilitate reading and writing standard data formats, performing geometric transformations, representing three-dimensional space, and visualizing data products.
The curie library comprises a standard set of object-oriented tools for radiation data and analysis. It provides utilities to manipulate gamma-ray interaction event data (listmode), slice it, convert to discretized binmode and save it to disk.
The stark package provides low-level tools that are leveraged by both curie and trajan. Additionally, the radkit libraries have associated Robot Operating System packages for use in real-time as well as in robotic systems.
