I was hoping to use the Reach RTK for accurate geoTagging of images on a dji Matrice 600. I’m a little confused on how the two RTK units will communicate. Just to clarify, I’m not trying to integrate the Reach with the nav at this point, I’m simply wanting to log the RTK coordinates when an image is captured. (assuming I can grab the photo capture event from the onboard SDK of the drone…)
Can anyone give an outline of what it takes to get something like that rigged up?
Hello, a very simple process would be something like this. Both Reach units running simultaneously but not communicating with each other. They would both be logging files at the same time and once the flight was completed you could post process them together on your desktop to get high accuracy flight log. This does not cover the issue of synchronizing the time of your photos with the flight log. There is more info on the forum on that, but not specific to DJI, as far as I have seen. That is a concise answer to keep you thinking until one of the experts respond.
I would think that it is. Once again, you should be able to have it connected to VRS network if you have a data connection or radio for correction info.
Otherwise, I think you should be able to download log files from network??? and process them later with Reach logs.
Let’s see what the other guys say.
Some reading here as well.
Did you ever get this to work? I am trying to get it to work on a Phantom by mounting the Reach with NTRIP to it and then post process it for geotagging images. Only hard part is there isn’t really a way to sync the picture taken to the reach.
