GPS “Odometer” Distance Measurements

 THE BOOK of DT's INTERRUPTS is an organization of interrupt service routines and other works written by Darrel Taylor, RIP. Interrupt routines are arranged per Darrel's original list. Darrel Taylor's Instant Interrupts are an extension of the work of Tim Box whom in October of 2002 wrote INT_CTRL.pbp Many of the forum members felt this is a long overdue project. THE BOOK of DT's INTERRUPTS will be a valuable resource and a tribute to Darrel Taylor the "Fanatical Contributor". THE BOOK of DT's INTERRUPTS is located at http://dt.picbasic.co.uk/

# Thread: GPS “Odometer” Distance Measurements

1. ## GPS “Odometer” Distance Measurements

Hello,

I am interested in using a low cost GPS receiver for producing a TTL pulse for every meter of distance cd travelled. This as an alternative to hacking into the vehicles transmission or ABS “Speed” sensors.

For Radio Range measurements, testing would be done in a straight line with a clear view of the sky. Velocity would be constant between (5-10) MPH.

Absolute position is not important but a consistent incremental update is.

If someone has a project containing the core code, I would be willing to pay for customization.

i would be quite interested in seeing your theory on how consistent incremental distance data
at 1m resolution can be extracted from a low cost GPS receiver at any rate let alone 5 times a second

My phone usually gives about 10m error at least.

I tested many cheap gps receivers and coordinates are oscilating alltime , so I obtained 1-14 m error ( sometime errors are more than 20m) . Its very interesting Ardupilot , APm and few RC Bait Boat Autopilot have a 1-2m error while using GPS M8N , M6N .
Its used a average for coordinates or another algorithm like Gauss ?
