Rpanion Electronics is an Australian company offering hardware and software solutions for autonomous vehicles, including custom development. We specialise in Companion Computer (see What is a Companion Computer) integration with MAVLink-based flight controllers – such as Ardupilot and PX4.

We offer hardware such as the Pi-Connect Lite. This is a HAT add-on for the Raspberry Pi that simplifies integration with popular flight controllers. It includes a high-capacity power module, telemetry connector and a power switch.

We also offer the free Rpanion-server software. It is a web-based GUI that runs on the companion computer. From the GUI, the network, video and telemetry routing can be easily configured.
