Software used to control autonomous vehicles.
Mission Planner is a free, open-source ground station for communicating with autonomous aircraft, vehicles, or boats running Ardupilot firmware. It's used to monitor such vehicles, view logs, and create waypoint missions.

Fortunately, Mission Planner is very easy to install on your Raspberry Pi in just two steps.

  1. Install Pi-Apps - the best app installer for Raspberry Pi.
  2. Use Pi-Apps to install Mission Planner.


For the best chance of this working, we recommend using the latest version of Raspberry Pi OS, which is currently version Bookworm.
Raspberry Pi OS has 32-bit and 64-bit variants, both of which will run on most Raspberry Pi computers, including the Pi 3, Pi 4, and Pi5.
Mission Planner will run on either PiOS 32-bit or 64-bit.
