Deploying AWS Greengrass on Raspberry Pi 3

In this section, we will deploy AWS Greengrass on Raspberry Pi 3 Model B. To implement AWS Greengrass deployment, we have the Raspberry Pi 3 board and an active AWS account. There are several steps to deploy AWS Greengrass on Raspberry Pi 3. Perform the following steps:

  1. Prepare Raspberry Pi 3
  2. Configure Raspberry Pi 3 and other IoT devices to AWS IoT
  3. Install AWS Greengrass

These steps will be explained in the following sections.

Preparing Raspberry Pi 3

The Raspberry Pi 3 board can run on several OSes. A list of supported OSes for Raspberry Pi 3 can be found at To work with AWS Greengrass Core, it is recommended that you install the latest Raspbian Linux OS for Raspberry Pi, which can be found at For a refresher on installation on Raspberry Pi 3, I recommend you follow the instructions mentioned at
