WaterLinked GPS access to output data


We are some engineering students working on a controller for a blueROV 2.0, and we want to integrate the underwater GPS (by WaterLinked) as measurement for positioning and velocity in the x,y plane. we have some trouble getting access to the data that the GPS provides.

The controller will be written in python on the raspberry using pymavlink.

So my question is, how do I get a x and y value from the GPS and being able to use in a controller.

Hi Fredrik,

Would you mind asking this question directly on the Blue Robotics forums so that our engineers will see it and get back to you? Here’s a link: https://discuss.bluerobotics.com/c/product-support/underwater-gps

The information is available over the Water Linked API but if you’ve got the system integrated with the BlueROV2 you should also be able to get the information by listening to the mavlink messages.
