We are happy to announce the release of Version 0.7.0 of Rpanion-server!
Rpanion-Server is an Open-Source software package for a managing the companion computer (such as the Raspberry Pi) connected to an ArduPilot or PX4-based flight controller. It will run on most Linux-based systems.
Rpanion-Server consists of a node.js webserver for the user interface and mavlink-router for routing MAVLink telemetry from the connected flight controller. GStreamer handles low latency video streaming from any connected cameras. There are also modules for managing network connections and viewing hardware information.
The web-based user interface provides access to view and manage all features. This makes it easy to manage common functions such as network connections, flight logging, telemetry streaming and configuring video streams.
Version 0.7.0 adds the following major new features:
- Support MJPEG cameras for video streaming
- Added button to disable all Wi-Fi adapters
- GUI overhaul, using the Bootstrap framework
The documentation and pre-built disk images for the Raspberry Pi are available at https://www.docs.rpanion.com/software/rpanion-server.
