Units – Time-of-Flight (ToF) VL53L0X Laser Ranging Sensor Unit



Description


TOF that employs time-of-flight techniques to resolve distance between the emit point and the reach point of a subject, measuring the round trip time of an artificial light signal provided by a laser.

This unit integrated a distance measuring sensor VL53L0x providing accurate distance measurement whatever the target reflectance, unlike conventional technologies. It can measure absolute distances up to 2m in less than 30ms.

This unit communicates with M5Core via I2C(0x29).
