After a nuclear accident, rescue operation path planning in the radioactive environment is an important part of the emergency response decision matrix. Considering the environmental characteristics of the radiation field, a method based on coupling the radiation field dose factor and ant colony optimization was used to plan the path under simulated time and dose numerical constraints. Using the typical radiation region of a nuclear power plant as input, equipment inspection path planning in the radiation field was simulated. The results show that the method in this paper can provide decision support for rapid response in a nuclear emergency.

Key words: Nuclear emergency, Radiation dose, Ant colony optimization, Path planning
