Radio link flexibility
simpleRTK3B can be used with almost any radio link: WiFi, BT, ISM, 2G/3G/4G… and is compatible with your existing ArduSimple products! Check our store to learn more!

Up to 100Hz RTK (Pro) and 20Hz RTK+Attitude (Heading)
• Track any movement with a latency below 10ms
• Go up to 50Hz Attitude tracking if you don’t need RTK position.

Advanced configurations
• Antenna offset settings
• Upload antenna calibration file
• Compatible with almost anything: heading in HDT format, CMR support, complete RTCM message set
• Work with local coordinate systems thanks to RTCM 1021 & 1023 support

Arduino, STM32, Raspberry Pi and Pixhawk ready
We thought about your DIY needs and we made simpleRTK3B ready to be connected with your favorite development board.
The board is 100% functional by itself and can be connected directly to Pixhawk autopilot to provide centimeter level GNSS.

Multi band and Multi constellation
• Reduces convergence time
• Increases ambiguity fixing rates
• Increases overall cm-level position availability

RTK Modes

simpleRTK3B supports different operating modes

Standalone simplest way of reaching 1m position accuracy without range limitations
The most basic configuration is to use simpleRTK3B as a standalone GNSS application board.
Connect it to your Arduino, computer or smartphone and enjoy your position in seconds.

simpleRTK2B_standalone_configuration
simpleRTK2B_base_rover_configuration

Base – rover configuration – get <1cm accuracy with a maximum range of 35km from the base station
Use two simpleRTK3B configured as base station and rover.
Connect the base station and/or rover to your Arduino, computer or smartphone and you will get both positions in seconds.

Base – multiple rovers configuration – get <1cm accuracy with a maximum range of 35km from the base station
Configure one simpleRTK3B as base and broadcast its RTK corrections to both your simpleRTK2B and simpleRTK3B to get centimeter level accuracy.
Connect it to your Arduino, computer or smartphone and you will get your position in seconds.

simpleRTK2B_base_multiple_rovers_configuration
simpleRTK2B_moving_base_configuration

RTK Heading – get <1cm accuracy and a complete Attitude and Heading Reference system with a maximum range of 35km from the base station
Install simpleRTK3B and get position+heading, or connect to a base station and get RTK+heading.
Connect it to your Arduino, computer or smartphone and you will get your position, attitude and heading in seconds.
