Standalone Reach M+ Accuracy | How to access to IMU data streaming?

(Stefano Feraco) #1

Hello everyone,
I am a newbie with GPS systems and I recently bought a Reach M+ standalone. I successfully can read data in ReachView App, read data on external software through serial port (MATLAB), etc.
Well, I have two questions:

  1. How much is the nominal accuracy of Emlid Reach M+ (+ Antenna) if using without a base station?
  2. How can I access to the IMU data (velocity, in particular) that I can see in ReachView?

Hi @stefer,

One standalone Reach can provide submeter accuracy in real-time. With post-processing relative to the base (ex. CORS), you can get cm accuracy.

IMU is on our to-do list, however, it is not yet implemented in ReachView.
The good news is that the driver for the sensor is installed and you can make use of it if you know Linux and programming.

How to obtain that? Using SBAS correction? Just the normal single status in ReachView?

Thanks for catching me here, @wizprod. The correct answer would be that the accuracy in real-time is meter level with a standalone unit.
