NTRIP stands for Networked Transport of RTCM via Internet Protocol. Simply put, NTRIP is a standard method for RTK GPS rovers and base stations to exchange correction data over the internet.
When an RTK GNSS rover uses NTRIP, it's considered a Client.
When an RTK GNSS base uses NTRIP, it's considered a Server.
NTRIP servers and clients connect to an NTRIP Caster, a hub for distributing corrections.
Any rover with NTRIP client capability can connect to RoboDot's NTRIP Caster. For example, when connecting a DJI M300, or DJI Phantom 4 RTK to a nearby RoboDot over WIFI, the operator connects the controller to the RoboDot's NTRIP Caster as if the RoboDot were on the internet.
When using RoboDot as a Rover with internet access, RoboDot can be used as an NTRIP Client to access NTRIP Casters to supply relevant base connections. Caster services are sometimes referred to as VRS or virtual reference stations.
