This tutorial will cover how to configure MissionPlanner and QGroundControl to send base station RTK corrections to the autopilot. The instructions have been tested with simpleRTK2B, simpleRTK2Blite and simpleRTK3B GNSS receivers.
If you want to use a NTRIP service, please check this tutorial.
With Mission Planner the process is extremely easy, the instructions are the same for simpleRTK2B, simpleRTK2Blite (u-blox ZED-F9P) and simpleRTK3B (Septentrio Mosaic X5) receivers:
- Configure your GNSS receiver as a base station
- Connect the GNSS receiver to your PC
- Connect the autopilot or radio telemetry link to your PC
- Open Mission Planner and connect to your autopilot as usual
- In Mission Planner, go to SETUP >> Optional Hardware > RTK/GPS Inject
- Select the COM port where your GNSS base station is connected to and set the proper baudrate
- Click Connect button
- If everything is correct, you will see a summary of GPS signal status and generated RTCM messages as well as your GNSS base station position on the map
- The GNSS receiver connected to your autopilot will receive RTCM corrections and enter into fixed/float RTK mode
When you go back to Mission Planner main screen you will see the base station position as well as your Ardupilot GNSS position:
