An automatically steerable agricultural vehicle or equipment, which uses a RTK compatible GPS receiver.

Is the file format used for the transmission of RTK correction data and the abbreviation stands for Radio Technical Commission for Maritime Services 3.

The abbreviaton stands for Real-Time Kinematic and describes a method of high-precision positioning through satellites and a reference station.
RTK base station

Is the reference station which transmitts the required RTK correction data to registered Rovers via mobile communication networks.

RTK CLUE Cluster

Single RTK base stations are connected to an individual group of reference stations, the so-called RTK CLUE Clusters, which cover an individual area.
