  • An Abbreviation for Real Time Kinematic Satellite Navigation
  • Essentially Satellite Navigation but more precise
  • This is done via a basestation sending correction data to the moving componet, known as the "rover unit"
  • Many rovers can use one base station See this post on how to do this effectively
  • All in all this can produce anywhere from centimeter to single didgit milimeter accuracy depending the setup
  • VERY useful for RC and Autonomous Vehicle Applications
  • Also used for surveying
  • Basestations can be a service for larger scale, or purchased/built and placed/operated by the user
