I haven’t bought simpleRTK2B yet, but I want to and I need some advice to decide which configuration is the best for my project.
In my project, I want to be able to acquire position data in various scenario, mostly urban, and I want the best accuracy possible so I opted for simpleRTK2B.
I’m newbie in this field but reading the tutorials I think that in an urban scenario the configuration simpleRTK2B with NTRIP corrections is the best if I don’t want the limit of 2.5km of base-rover LR kit. The problem is that there aren’t reference stations to connect to nearby.
So, my question is, if I buy for example the MR kit and use 1 device to collect data as a fixed base connected to a PC running u-center (or SNIP software) as a NTRIP server/caster and then send correction through Internet to my other device (connected via Bluetooth to a smartphone with Lefebure app client), can it work?
As a newbie this is the only procedure that I have thought, any advice is really appreciated. Thank you.
What you describe is possible, but you don’t need the MR kit. The MR kit is to connect 2 units next to each other in line of sight of a few hundred meters.
You need 2x Basic Starter Kits & connect them to internet with one PC each.
Thank you very much for the answer!
One last clarification, so I’m forced to use two PC or for the rover can I use a client like the one that you use in the tutorial (Lefebure NTRIP Client)? Because with the rover I would like to move freely without a PC.
Thank you for your time.
Sure, you can also use a tablet or mobile phone. Note that you might need a bluetooth module depending on your device and which software you want to use.
The SimpleRTK2B uses GPS module is ZED-F9P dual band. It is very suitable for high precision RTK positioning applications.
However, your request is to operate in urban areas, Internet connection is necessary. There is a great combination when you use ESPrtk with simpleRTK2B (it integrates Bluetooth + WIFI + NTRIP). If you intend to use simpleRTK2B with Lefebure NTRIP Client (app), you can use the bluetooth module HC05.
Alternatively, you may not need Lefebure NTRIP Client if you use ESPrtk + SimpleRTK2B as a combination module. All the system needs is connecting WIFI or Ethernet to access the internet.
