This is a driver with user-interface in order to encode messages for - and decode messages from an ROV integrated with a
- SPRINT INS
- Bathy (Depth Sensor) system
During normal operation the SPRINT INS will establish an accurate position for the ROV based on the integration of Inertial, Doppler, USBL, Depth Sensor and Surface Positioning (Computation Node Result) information.
This driver can send the necessary surface positioning information to the SPRINT INS in order to enhance the INS solution. At the same time it will read and decode the integrated accurate ROV position and attitude data, which can be used in a separate Computation Setup.
There are two versions of this driver: a serial one and a network (UDP) one:
- For the serial driver version, receiving data from, and sending data to, is done via the same serial COMport
For the network driver version, receiving data from, and sending data to, is done via the same LAN UDP port.
The user-interface for both drivers is exactly the same, only the I/O protocol is different.
