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.

Hey there,

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?

Hi @RTK_Hunter,

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.
