Does the IMU in the RS2 offer tilt correction like the Leica GS18 ?
Theoretically that is the idea, but so far the IMU has not been utilitized in ReachView.
Can the hardware support this feature?
To perform ‘tilt correction’ you need:
- the angle from vertical (plumb)
- the horizontal angle from true north
- the distance between the point being measured and the GNSS receiver’s anteanna (pole length)
So yes, theoretically, the hardware can support it.
But I think it is not as easy to implement as it seems, otherwise we would probably have that feature already.
This would be a useful feature.
Thank you for the suggestion!
We don’t have plans on implementing it in the near future.
I am a few versions and products behind but is IMU data even accessible now?
As @bide has pointed out, IMU support is not implemented in the software yet. However, since the v2.22.0 firmware update, we have allowed the SPI access for the non-root users. You can get IMU readings from SPI.
