RTK (Real Time Kinematic) is the use of fixed position base stations to enhance the accuracy of GPS systems by transmitting signals that correct positioning errors caused by the Earth’s atmosphere.
Fixed RTK base stations, as the name suggests, have a permanent position which never changes. This position is transmitted to the Tractor which can then correct its own position, which constantly varies, and align it to the base station. Therefore creating the most accurate position.
RTKF Net, the UK’s largest independent provider of RTK GPS corrections, has installed their latest base station at the RVW Pugh Market Drayton depot. This has enabled RTKF Net to strengthen and expand their coverage throughout Shropshire.
If you would like more information on guidance systems on any of our tractors – please give your local depot a call today.
