Hardware Requirements

The software is designed to run on most hardware, and should work on any system with equivalent or better specifications. However, it’s important to note that hardware and software are closely interconnected. So, before selecting an operating system, make sure that the minimum system requirements are met.

Please note that Autodarts is primarily developed for Linux-based systems. While there are setups available for Windows and macOS, they are currently in alpha release and may contain bugs.

Releases are available at Github. Follow the link in the menu to the left.


For Autodarts, the minimum hardware requirements are as follows.

  • CPU: 2x2.0GHz or 4x1.5GHz
  • RAM: 1GB
  • USB: 3 ports for cameras (at least 2 seperate USB Buses)
  • Storage: At least 1GB of free Storage

Please check out the Example Setups section. There, you will find some tested setups that will help you determine the best hardware for your needs.


For cameras, you should consider purchasing OV9732 with a 100° viewing angle. These cameras work great and offer a good price-performance ratio. Other cameras should also work. Before buying, please visit the Discord server. PLEASE use the search function before you Post “Is this camera working”!

Dartboard illumination

You can buy ready-made solutions like the “Winmau Plasma” or “Target Corona.” You can also build your own ring. For this, please check out the 3D Printing 3D Printing section, where you can find STL files for the Winmau Plasma ring. Additionally, you can find files to construct your own ring.
