What does RTK, PPK, and SBAS mean?
Real Time Kinematic (RTK) uses real time information from a reference base station to obtain cm level accuracy in the HGuide Navigation System. A real time connection such as a cellular modem is needed.
Post Processing Kinematic (PPK) provides similar performance improvement but does so with the recorded GNSS and HGuide data. Satellite correction information is obtained after recording from a dedicated data repository.
Satellite Based Augmentation Systems (SBAS) provides improved position via a regional correction system; but the corrections are inherent to the provided GNSS signals. No user action is needed and much of the world is covered by SBAS.
