VL53L0X TOF Based LIDAR Laser Distance Sensor


The VL53L0X is a new generation Time-of-Flight (ToF) laser-ranging module housed in the smallest package on the market today, providing accurate distance measurement whatever the target reflectances, unlike conventional technologies.

The VL53L0X integrates a leading-edge SPAD array (Single Photon Avalanche Diodes) and embeds ST’s second-generation FlightSenseTM patented technology. The VL53L0X’s 940 nm VCSEL emitter (Vertical-Cavity Surface-Emitting Laser), is totally invisible to the human eye, coupled with internal physical infrared filters, enabling longer-ranging distances, higher immunity to ambient light, and better robustness to cover glass optical crosstalk.
Where to Use VL53L0X Sensor?
The VL53L0X sensor got very popular after it was first used in iPhone 7 for 3D imaging and Apple is still using this sensor in its latest mobile phones. It can detect an object within its range even the object’s surface is highly reflective hence measuring distance accurately. It has an integrated Single Photon Avalanche Diodes (SPAD) array.
How to Use VL53L0X Sensor
This sensor is easy to use and can be easily incorporated. The module can be powered by a source of 2.6V to 5.5V which is then regulated to 2.8V using the onboard regulator. For communication, you can use the I2C communication pins provided. The sensor can easily be implemented by most of the microcontrollers.
Obstacle detection in robotics.
Hand detection in hand driers, soap dispensers, faucets, etc.
Gesture recognition in one dimension.
Widely used in-camera autofocus to enhance the camera performance in low light or fast-moving objects conditions.
Used as a proximity sensor in many phones.
Operating voltage : 2.6V to 5.5V
Supply Current : 10mA
Communication : I2C protocol
