With a growing community utilizing the DUO in more advanced and unique projects, we have been hard at work to add new features and functionality. As such, we are proud to announce the release of the latest DUO Platform (v188.8.131.52).
This release brings official support for ROS, a feature that was much requested by the community and will allow users to create robot applications and interface with the DUO. In addition to the ROS support, we made significant improvements to the DUO API that make it more compatible with Unity3D and other C# applications and also added an auto-exposure feature to the DUO API and DUO Dashboard for greater flexibility with exposure settings.
