I am hoping to suggest the RS2+ rover as a GNSS tool to assist with position checking Komatsu construction machines that are on state provided NTRIP. The Komatsu machines utilize Topcon hardware and T-Mobile/AT&T networks mostly in my area.
In my mind both the machine and rover would be on NTRIP and at that point I should be able to position check the machine vs the rover. The machine’s monitor will give calculated positions in relation to the work equipment which can then be checked against a rover.
Would a hotspot from a cellphone be adequate for the rover to access NTRIP or is a data plan required? (I expect a hotspot would be just fine but want to make sure)
I am curious if the way I am understanding this would make this a good tool to assist with troubleshooting of machine operation concerns.
If anyone has any suggestions or insight on this I would be happy to hear it!
Thanks and have a good one.
