piksi_multi_rtk

ROS node to read SBP messages from an attached Piksi Multi RTK device.

The piksi_multi_rtk package has been tested under ROS Indigo and Ubuntu 14.04, and ROS Kinetic and Ubuntu 16.04.

WARNING: default baud rate of the driver is set to '230400' (default baud rate of Piksi Multi is '115200').

Installation and Configuration

**WARNING: install ONLY ONE version of SBP library, depending of which Hardware version you are using. This page contains the driver for Piksi Multi.

The following code will automatically download the required version of libsbp and install it in the default folder /usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/sbp-<SBP_LIB_VERSION>-py2.7.egg/sbp/.

# Execute this line in the package folder 'piksi_multi_rtk'
source install/install_piksi_multi.sh

Firmware and SBP Lib Version

Please check here which Piksi Multi firmware version based on the current SBP Lib version.

Advertised Topics

The most interesting advertised topics are:

  • /piksi/navsatfix_rtk_fix (sensor_msgs/NavSatFix) in case of RTK fix position from Piksi then this message contains WGS 84 coordinates;
  • /piksi/navsatfix_spp (sensor_msgs/NavSatFix) in case of SPP fix position from Piksi then this message contains WGS 84 coordinates;
  • /piksi/navsatfix_best_fix (sensor_msgs/NavSatFix) this message contains WGS 84 coordinates with best available fix at the moment (either RTK or SPP);
  • /piksi/enu_pose_fix (geometry_msgs/PointStamped) this message contains ENU (East-North-Up) coordinate of the receiver in case of RTK fix. Orientation is set to identity quaternion (w=1);
  • /piksi/enu_pose_spp (geometry_msgs/PointStamped) this message contains ENU (East-North-Up) coordinate of the receiver in case of SPP fix. Orientation is set to identity quaternion (w=1);
  • /piksi/enu_pose_best_fix (geometry_msgs/PointStamped) this message contains ENU (East-North-Up) coordinate of the receiver with best available fix at the moment (either RTK or SPP). Orientation is set to identity quaternion (w=1);

Rosservice

The following services are available: - piksi/settings_write: writes a specific setting to Piksi Multi; - piksi/settings_read_req: requests a parameter to Piksi Multi; - piksi/settings_read_resp: reads the latest response of a "settings_read_req" request; - piksi/settings_save: saves the current settings of Piksi Multi to its flash memory.
