Proximity (ToF) VL53L1X in 2D LIDAR application

If you like it, share it

This 2D LiDAR (light detection and ranging) is an application example, based on nine VL53L1X long distance ranging ToF sensors. It allows a simple depth map of the environment to be created with a 180 ° FoV.

The VL53L1X ULD API (ultra lite driver application programming interface) can be downloaded from under STSW-IMG009.
It is a set of C functions controlling one or many VL53L1X sensors which enable the development of end user applications.
This 2D LIDAR application is an example of how to control multiple sensors.
The P-NUCLEO-53L1A1 is the basis of the hardware.
P-NUCLEO-53L1A1 combines the STM32F401RE NUCLEO board and the X-NUCLEO-53L1A1 expansion board.
The nine sensors are based on VL53L1X breakout boards, which can be ordered from distributors as a kit of two boards under the reference VL53L1X-SATEL.
