Best Practices

In a high rate control setup it is recommended that queries are avoided or kept to a minimum. The reason for this is to reserve the maximum time for the controlling commands.

The user must pay attention that the actual data sent in is smooth. The signal tracking in GNSS receivers are very sensitive to high dynamics and won’t be able to track signals if position changes with several meters during one epoch. Hence it should be preferred to change user position using the more dynamic speed and acceleration commands, as a ‘blunt’ position change has to be smooth and small for the receivers to be able to follow. Hence using position/speed commands you only need to send commands when these parameter values changes. Relying on position commands you are recommended/forced to utilize 10 Hz commands to make the movements smooth enough for receivers to follow.
