Q: What is RTK positioning?

RTK stands for Real Time Kinematic (GPS).

In terms of location information, “GPS” is often thought of quickly, but it refers to U.S. military satellites and the generic name for global navigation satellites launched around the world, including Japan’s “michibiki” is GNSS. These satellite-based position data are always in error by themselves only.

RTK uses two receivers: a fixed station (reference station) and a mobile station, and exchanges information between two receivers in real time to improve positioning accuracy. However, since receivers are expensive (about ¥1 million yen), it has been difficult to use them generally.

In order to make it easier for farmers to get started with smart farming, the Agricultural Information Design Company has developed and sold a GPS/GNSS receiver that is also a standard station at an easy-to-purchase price as a “AgriBus-GMini” so that farmers can start smart agriculture. In RTK positioning, although we have received high praise from farmers,
