LED-TOF

64x64 LED matrix controlled by a raspberry pi zero and a VL53L0X time-of-flight distance sensor.

See https://gehringer.li/led-matrix for more detailed description of the project.

##Summary: This code is connecting the rpi-rgb-led-matrix by H. Zeller scripts to be controlled by a VL53L0X time-of-flight distance sensor, which is implemented by using the this repository of John Bryan Moore. This project is far from coding elegance and screams of my programming ignorance but at least it works.

Installation and setup

  1. Install the repositories mentioned above and get the respective demos running (for the matrix control I don't care for the python code since on a raspberry zero this performs quite slowly compared to C, check out the examples-api-use folder for ./demo).
  2. Put event.py in the python folder of the distance senser, e.g. /home/pi/VL53L0X/python and make it autorun on startup.
  3. put the batch file event.sh in /home/pi (or whereever you refer it from the event.py). Thats it.
  4. No simply modify the event.sh to do whatever you want - I prefer to display my own .ppm images as a runtext.
