VL53L1X

Arduino library to support the VL53L1X Time-of-Flight and gesture-detection sensor

API

This sensor uses I2C to communicate. And I2C instance is required to access to the sensor.

The API provides simple distance measure, single swipe gesture detection, directional (left/right) swipe gesture detection and single tap gesture detection.

Note

The maximum detection distance is influenced by the color of the target and the indoor or outdoor situation due to absence or presence of external infrared. The detection range can be comprise between ~40cm and ~400cm. (see chapter 5 of the VL53L1X datasheet). The library should work also with standard Arduino boards. In this case you just need to adjust the code in the sketch in order to use the correct Wire instance and the correct pin number for XSHUT and GPIO1 pins.
