Different Beacon Latencies

Post by cjh »

I am using 2 Super Beacons as paired hedgehogs on a robot platform moving around a space of approximately 20m x 5m using NIA with 3 stationary beacons. In the dashboard, one of the hedgehogs appears to be updating slightly later than the other, enough that the angle appears off by a few degrees due to being calculated between the positions of the two beacons at slightly different times. Both beacons have identical settings. The problem only occurs if IMU Fusion is enabled. I have recalibrated both beacon's accelerometers, but this did not help.

Hello,

What version of software do you use?
Please update to the latest version, this issue should be fixed in one of latest releases.
If doesn't help please share a file generated by 'Save map' button in the dashboard and a short video showing the problem.

Thanks, I'm using 7.08, so I will try upgrading to 7.2. In the meantime, I fixed it by setting the window of averaging for the modem to 0, the accuracy still seems ok so I will keep that setting for now.
