Demonstrating a high precision positioning function with GNSS #gnss @mazgch
Michael Ammann has developed a project to demonstrate a high precision positioning function. It uses a Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) L1/L2 receiver with Real Time Kinematic (RTK) and Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) Sensor based Dead Reckoning (DR) function to determine its location.
In order achieve its best accuracy the receiver needs a correction data stream. In this solution, the correction data can be received from a satellite broadcast using a LBAND receiver or over IP connectivity using WiFi or LTE. While other systems typically use local reference stations as correction source that have to be setup a maintained, this system makes use of a continental wide commercial SSR service.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
