TFMini - Micro LiDAR Sensor Module for Arduino Project
The TFMini is a ToF (Time of Flight) LiDAR sensor which measures distances with a range of 30 centimeters up to 12 meters. Measuring only 42x15x16mm. The TFMini is easy to power at only 5V and easy to talk to using a 3.3V UART at 115200 baud.
The four wires are terminated with pins making it easy to use with Arduinos and other platforms with female headers.
This LiDAR Sensor does not use laser light for detecting. The sensor uses LED and optics. Many such systems are being marketed under the name "LiDAR," although it may be more appropriate to think of this device as a "Time-of-Flight Infrared Rangefinder". It differs significantly from traditional IR rangefinders in that it uses ToF to determine range and not triangulation.
