VL53L0X Time-of-Flight long distance ranging sensor, accurate ranging up to 2m


VL53L0X Distance Sensor is a Time-of-Flight (ToF) ranging module based on the VL53L0X from ST, with accurate ranging up to 2m, it is controlled through I2C interface, and pretty low power consumption.

The VL53L0X is a ToF sensor which embeds the ST’s second generation FlightSense technology.

Unlike conventional ranging sensors, the VL53L0X is able to provide accurate distance measurement whatever the target color and reflectance, achieves better anti-interference capability.
