RTK GPS Localization

We have have decided not to use an RTK GPS since the benefits it offers does not fit the final goal of this project. In order to obtain an RTK lock, GPS's require clear skies 30 degrees and up from the ground on all sides. This is not practical for the canyon-like area that is the RIT campus. Even if the GPS was able to get a consistent lock on campus, delivering a person in front of building would cause an immediate loss in the RTK lock. There is also a wait time associated with gaining that RTK lock. Depending on the GPS, it can take between 5 and 15 minutes get to the RTK state. The final aspects considered was development time and cost. Getting our current RTK GPS to work will require a vast amount of effort for almost no gain. Alternatively, if we wanted to purchase a GPS that would be working quickly, it would cost us almost $1000. With all of this information, we have decided that it is not worth the pursuit of a working RTK GPS.
