So now we have two.
The reason for the purchase was initially to mount it on a second agricultural vehicle.
Then we decided to remove the magnetic compass and calculate the direction using two gps antennas.
I need some guidance on how to configure everything for it to work in the following way:
1 Base -> 2 Rover
Thanks for your help.
I keep the base unaltered from the first kit.
From the first kit I take the rover (with LR radio) and load: simpleRTK2B_FW113_HeadingKit_MovingBase_5Hz-00.txt
From the second kit I take the rover, remove the LR radio and load: simpleRTK2B_FW113_HeadingKit_Rover_5Hz-00.txt
Lastly I connect the TX1 pin of the Rover with the LR radio to the TX2 pin of the rover without the LR radio.
The GNS pins of the LR rover with the GNS pins of the rover without LR
and I put the IOREF pins at + 5v
Once this is done, how can I read the data via arduino? As I said above, I currently read via Arduino’s Serial3 and the rover’s TX1 RX1 with LR.
OK, I'm still a little confused but let's move on. Let's say i want to use the solution suggested here: @@@@@@@@@@ Hi vcorp, Configuration files are available here: http://www.ardusimple.com/configuration-files - The base station remains the same. - One of your rovers with LR radio remains the same. Just update the firmware "moving base from simpleRTK2B + heading kit" - Take another simpleRTK2B board, remove the LR radio and load the “rover from simpleRTK2B + heading kit”. Now connect: rover-with-LR-radio-TX1 pin, to rover-without-radio-TX2 pin. Also connect GNS pins, and enable IOREF on both boards. Should now work as a simpleRTK2B + heading kit. Check the hookup guide: https://www.ardusimple.com/simplertk2heading-hookup-guide/ @@@@@@@ Is the tinygps ++ library still valid? From which pins will I read the nmea data and from which pins the header for the compass.
Using the "Plumbing" solution instead, will I get the nmea data from both rtk boards? I apologize for the thousand questions but it is not very clear how to use more than one product to also have the header.
I doubt it is necessary to know my background.
The question I asked is very simple: can I use two rtk boards with one base?
The answer was no. But i can connect the two rtk boards together, removing the lr antenna from the second board.
Hence my new question.
Since I currently use Arduino mega, an rtk kit from which I read the nmea data on Serial3, connecting the second board to the RX2 pin with the TX1 pin of the first Board, i was wondering how I can read the data in the new configuration.
(Because TX1 RX1 pins were connected to Serial3) If you read above, you will see that I have described what I use and how I read the data.
Having eliminated the magnetic compass, I calculate the direction using two GPS antennas (And I know how to do this calculation …).
If I transform my rtk kit: https://www.ardusimple.com/product/simplertk2b-starter-kit-lr-ip65/ in an RTK Heading kit, it seems logical to me to ask how I will read the data.
My goal is to know the direction in which I am going (Example North West) and from the gps data to go to the stored waypont.
The code is already wrote by me and it works.
But I realized that the magnetic compass has too much interference.
So having already two rtk kits I wanted to use them for the purpose I just described.
I hope I have explained myself more precisely.
From the first (rover + base) i will collect the data for navigation.
From the second (rover + base) I will calculate the heading using the NMEA data present on the current position towards the first rover antenna.
This is the site from which I made the bearing heading calculation:
I’m in the company doing tests.
As mentioned above, I want to try two rovers and two bases.
Question: Do the bases need to be configured so that they each connect to a pre-established rover? Example: Hey I’m base 1 and connecting to rover 1? If yes can you help me understand how to do it from u-center?
As always thanks in advance
