Beginner Question No RTK LED raspberry pi as python variable

Q&A forumBeginner Question No RTK LED raspberry pi as python variable
Orlando Lopez asked 3 weeks ago

Since the RTK has a No RTK LED which shows if RTK is engaged or not I was wondering if there is some way to detect that in python code for the raspberry pi. Pretty much I want to tie the No RtK to a variable in python.
 
My project uses the RTK to move a car up to a certain waypoint and then turn around but I’m having trouble with the RTK lock coming in and out, so I want to tell the car to only move forward while it has confirmed that the RTK lock is active, otherwise remain still and wait for RTK lock.
 
Something like this:
RTK = no RTK led
If RTK==true:
     Move forward
Else:
        Stop
How would that code look like in python for raspberry pi? I’m still new at this so any help would be appreciated.

Hi Orlando,
Custom exact code we don’t provide, but you can decode the RTK status from the message called GGA.
