Do you want to link your Raspberry Pi with dump1090 to FlightAware?

If you are running an ADS-B receiver with dump1090 on a Raspberry Pi then you can install the PiAware package to transmit your ADS-B receiver data to FlightAware.

PiAware users can simultaneously use data from their Raspberry Pi running dump1090 and also send flight data to FlightAware via PiAware. Users that share data with FlightAware automatically qualify for a free upgrade to an Enterprise Account.

What is PiAware?

PiAware is a FlightAware client program that runs on a Raspberry Pi to securely transmit dump1090 ADS-B and Mode S data to FlightAware. PiAware is for people who are already running their own Raspberry Pi with an ADS-B receiver and dump1090.

It's fast and easy to get started.

Using the simple steps below, you can configure your Raspberry Pi to feed FlightAware. The process should take two to three minutes.

Already running PiAware?

View the PiAware upgrade page to update to the latest version.

1What's needed

You should already have a Raspberry Pi with Raspbian installed and some basic familiarity with using it.

If you are new to using a Pi or need to build a receiver from scratch please see these instructions instead!

  • Raspberry Pi
  • Raspbian Jessie or Jessie Lite OS installed
  • Internet Connection
  • Access to a command line shell on the Pi, either over the network or using an attached keyboard and display

2Download and Install PiAware

When logged in, from the command line, execute the following commands.

This will download and install the PiAware repository package, which tells your Pi's package manager (apt) how to find FlightAware's software packages in addition to the packages provided by Raspbian.

wget http://zh-tw.flightaware.com/adsb/piaware/files/packages/pool/piaware/p/piaware-support/piaware-repository_3.5.3_all.deb
sudo dpkg -i piaware-repository_3.5.3_all.deb

This will download and install PiAware and required dependencies on your Raspberry Pi.

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install piaware

This will enable automatic and manual (web-based, via your request) PiAware software updates. These updates are disabled by default. To leave updates disabled, skip this step.

sudo piaware-config allow-auto-updates yes
sudo piaware-config allow-manual-updates yes

3Download and Install dump1090

If you don't already have ADS-B receiver software such as dump1090 installed, then you can install FlightAware's version of dump1090 by executing the following command.


sudo apt-get install dump1090-fa

4Reboot your Pi

Once you have finished installing and configuring the packages, reboot your Raspberry Pi to ensure that everything starts correctly.


sudo reboot

5在FlightAware.com上關聯您的PiAware用戶端。

您應該等待大約四五分鐘,讓PiAware啟動,然後就可以將您FlightAware帳戶與您的PiAware裝置進行關聯,以享受所有好處。

您的裝置開始運行之後,請:

在路由器管理介面檢視IP位置,並在瀏覽器中轉到同一個網路中分配的IP位置。如果該裝置還未關聯,則將顯示一個連結用於關聯該PiAware裝置。

或者

在FlightAware.com上關聯您的PiAware用戶端。

如果5分鐘後您的設備還未顯示為已關聯,請重新啟動設備,如果這仍然不起作用,請重新確認Wi-Fi設定(如果使用Wi-Fi)正確無誤。最後,您還可以透過ADSBsupport@FlightAware.com與我們聯絡。請檢查您的統計資訊頁面(見以下連結)以確認其是否關聯。

6檢視您的ADS-B統計資料

  1. 檢視您的ADS-B統計資料:http://zh-tw.flightaware.com/adsb/stats
    • FlightAware將立即開始處理您的資料,並在30分鐘內顯示您的統計資料。
  2. 通過點擊位於站點名稱右側的齒輪圖示,在統計資訊頁面配置您的位置和天線高度。
    • 多點定位,也稱為MLAT,可以使用從飛機接收消息的站點的位置來精確定位飛機的位置。
  3. FlightAware統計頁面還會顯示您設備的本機IP位址,並提供用於直接連接的連結。在這裡您可以點擊連結進入SkyView,通過這個入口網站在地圖上檢視接收器正在接收消息的航班。

7成功!

請記住,飛機發出的訊號無法穿透障礙物,所以天線應當安裝在對空"視線"良好的位置。最理想的是將其置於室外的屋頂上,此時其覆蓋範圍可超過250mi / 400km。

希望您喜歡使用PiAware,享受專為您這樣的ADS-B接收機使用者保留的额外FlightAware功能。 請訪問論壇討論區,分享您的經驗,或者了解更多資訊。
