NMEA-0183 Decoder/Encoder

Decoder/encoder for NMEA-0183 message types.

Installing

npm install -S @gnss/nmea

Basic Usage

Decoding

let buffer: string = ...; // String containing NMEA sentence
let message: NmeaMessage = NmeaTransport.decode(buffer);

Encoding

let message = ...; // Message to be encoded
let buffer: string = NmeaTransport.encode(message);

Creating

Messages can be manually constructed using NmeaMessage???.construct({}), which requires all message properties to be provided.

NmeaMessageGga.construct({
    talker: NmeaTalker.NAV_SYSTEM_GNSS,
    time: new Date(0, 0, 0, 1, 2, 3, 0),
    latitude: 66.66,
    longitude: 33.33,
    quality: NmeaFixQuality.SIMULATOR,
    numberSatellites: 10,
    hdop: 2.5,
    altitude: 180.00,
    geoidalSeparation: 90.00,
    differentialAge: 5,
    differentialStationId: 'differentialStationId',
})

Streams

Transform streams to convert from NmeaMessages to sentence strings and vice-versa.

let input: stream.Readable = ...;
let output: stream.Writable = ...;
input                                      // Stream of sentence strings
    .pipe(new NmeaDecodeTransformStream()) // Stream of NmeaMessage objects
    .pipe(new NmeaEncodeTransformStream()) // Stream of (identical) sentence strings
    .pipe(output);

NmeaDecodeTransformStream can optionally synchronize with the data stream e.g. if it starts receiving data from the middle of a message.
