The VL53L0X is a Time-of-Flight (ToF) laser-ranging sensor that can measure distances up to 2 meters with a resolution of 1 mm.VL53L0X Time Of Flight Sensor uses a laser emitter to send out a pulse of infrared light and then measures the time it takes for the light to reflect back to the sensor.
TheVL53L0X Time Of Flight Sensor can also report the ambient light level, which can use to improve the accuracy of the distance measurements. The VL53L0X sensor is a small, round sensor with a black plastic housing. It has a single I²C interface and a few other pins for power and reset.
Sensor VL53L0X uses a time-of-flight (ToF) method to measure distance. A laser emitter in the sensor sends out a pulse of infrared light, and the sensor then measures the time it takes for the light to reflect back to the sensor. The distance to the object is then calculated based on the speed of light.
