I’m new to Reach - how could I connect to a rover to obtain the position (rtk solution) and heading? I found the Emlid Reach Binary protocol description, but how do I get that information from the rover over WiFi?
I guess I set up the rover as tcpsvr with erb protocol. Then what?
Assuming I know the IP address of the rover, how (what communications protocol) would I use to get the data?
I suppose I would make a tcp connection, but what port? How do I get an erb message from the rover?
(my goal is to query rover position from another computer on the network, probably using a simple Python script)
I think this is a basic question, so I’m sure I’m overlooking something!
This sounds simple enough. However, if I connect to the tcp port, what controls which messages I receive? For example, ERB has 6 different messages. If I read your reply on the surface, do you mean that the messages are just streamed? If so, are all 6 messages sent in a loop, or, is there some pattern?
I would expect some type of request / response, but this doesn’t seem to be detailed in the ERB protocol document, or have I overlooked it?
