Real Time tracking of aircraft with Raspberry Pi #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi


Via Whiskeytangohotel.com

Almost all the aircraft flying overhead broadcast tracking information on 1.09GHz via ADS-B. ADS-B is an open protocol. So what? Well, it means you can decode it. If you just interested in what information this RasPI set up can provide to you take a look at the pics below. Keep reading if you are interested in duplicating the rig.

The two graphs below show how many aircraft were tracked and how many positions were reported to FlightAware.com (more on this later):
