With Ardusimple WiFi NTRIP Master module, you will be able to connect to your preferred RTK NTRIP service provider without any complexity, just by turning ON the hotspot feature on your mobile phone or other device.
You can also use it as a NTRIP server/caster or use a direct TCP/UDP client/server connection.
How it works:
– Plug it in the XBee socket. Use your smartphone or laptop to connect to the WiFi network that the module created, with name “ESP_XBee_XXXXXX” where XXXXXX is a random number.
– Go to your browser and type the following address “192.168.4.1”, a web interface will appear.
– Configure your preferred NTRIP service provider, and through which WiFi network should it connect to internet.
– Save configuration and reset the system. From now on, every time the WiFi hotspot you configured is in range, ArduSimple’s WiFi NTRIP Master will connect autonomously and provide RTK corrections to simpleRTK2B.
– P.S: Don’t forget to enable NMEA (if you use it as a client) or RTCM (if you use it as a server) on UART2 at 115’200bps on your simpleRTK2B.
Good to know:
– The WiFi NTRIP Master module is sent pre-configured, ready to be used with the simpleRTK2B board (if bought together)
– Default configuration is at 115’200bps
– Compatible with simpleRTK2B and simpleRTK2Blite
– Compatible with 2.4GHz WiFi
– It’s based on ESP32, so you can also write you own software on it
– It’s open source and it’s getting regular software updates through its GitHub: https://github.com/nebkat/esp32-xbee/releases
