GPS Replay



  • Hi,

    Is there an example file for the GPS replays? I looked at the wiki and it states it is possible but I did not see any examples. I am trying to take GPS coordinates and match the locations within ANVEL.

    Thank you!



  • @jmk479,

    You should be able to follow the instructions on the documentation page here for recording and playing back GPS replays: http://wiki.anvelsim.com/3/index.php/Replays#Creating_Replays

    Are you looking for an example of the data format, or are some of the instructions about how to work with the replay system unclear? Are you following the instructions but not getting any output? Please let us know what the issue is in more detail and we can help you out from there.

  • Hi,

    I am confused how to create one outside of ANVEL from GPS coordinates from a live test environment. I have time, lat, lon from a test environment. I would like to simulate the same scenario within ANVEL with the same GPS coordinates. So is the format of the file a list of time, lat, lon or it is different? I would like to see and example of one that has been created or used. I tried to create one within ANVEL but it kept crashing on me so I must be doing something wrong.

    Thank you.



  • @jmk479,

    I've attached a sample .grp (GPS Replay) file for you: 0_1540319498522_GPS Module-10.grp.txt. Here's what the contents look like. Of course, the number of data points here is limited but you should get the pattern:

    @END OF REPLAY FILE
    

    where the format is lat, lon, alt, error radius and then simulation time on the next line.

    Hopefully this helps you get started! Let us know if you can play your data back (using the steps outlined here http://wiki.anvelsim.com/3/index.php/Replays#Viewing_Replays)!
