For a space constrained application, the Sirius RTK GNSS Rover F9P module is a good choice. Indeed, it features a smart form-factor and built-in antenna that will relieve the need of an external antenna to set up onto your vehicle.
Moreover, it offers a user-friendly installation as it is plug-&-play & built specifically for the Pixhawk 3 PRO autopilot !
Owing to its multi-band RF front-end architecture, it provides all major constellations reception (GPS, GLONASS, Galileo , BeiDou, plus QZSS reception).
Equipped with professional magnetometer RM3100 , it will provide a heading reference to your vehicle so it can navigate through waypoints and eliminate magnetic disturbances due to motor coils and metal parts.
By placing a Fixed Reference GPS Station (or base station) whose precise position in longitude, latitude and altitude is known, we can calculate the positioning error that a GPS returns to us at each moment. It becomes easy to calculate the correction that gives us its exact position to the nearest centimeter. That is the role of our GNSS Base Sirius F9P included in this pack. A ready to use RTK GPS Kit for the Pixhawk 3 PRO autopilot.
