u-blox NEO-M8P is the smallest high precision RTK GNSS (Real Time Kinematics) module available on the market and TINY RTK is the first global solution for u-blox NEO-M8P. The RTK algorithms are pre-integrated into the module. As a result, size and weight are significantly reduced, and power consumption is five times lower than existing solutions, thus cutting costs and improving usability dramatically.
Following a high demand for an integrated solution for UAV users, we jointly achieved with u-blox and PX4 a version specially designed for this purpose : TinyRTK Drone Edition. The boards include patch antennas and a battery-powered base. Base can stream differential data to ground control station through a BLE module.
KEY FEATURES :
Centimeter‑level GNSS positioning for mass market, based on U-Blox M8P
Integrated Real Time Kinematics (RTK) for fast time‑to‑market
Smallest, lightest, and best energy‑efficient RTK module
Receiver type: 72-channel GPS L1 , GLONASS L1, BeiDou B1, GALILEO E1
Nav. update rate: up to 8 Hz
Position accuracy: 2.5 cm
MAVLink protocol encapsulation through u-blox NINA-B1 Bluetooth Low Energy module
Connectors: USB, JST-GH
Compass : HMC5983
Power : LiPo 1S compatible / USB with integrated charger
Size: 50 x 50 mm
Why this architecture?
it is small and consumes little energy
base can be standalone, wireless, rechargeable and located on a good sky view spot regardless of ground control station's position
base is compatible with 1S LiPos, rechargeable by USB with integrated charger
rover module is supported by Pixhawk
base module : encapsulation within MAVLink protocol is under development (some developers have already got our boards, we will keep sending them to all)
rover includes a compass (HMC5983)
patch antenna included to avoid additional integration costs
