The TF02 a ToF (Time of Flight) LiDAR sensor capable of measuring the distance to an object as far as 22 meters away! Its light weight and small size, combined with an IP65 enclosure rating, make this an excellent sensor for obstacle avoidance even in outdoor ambient light conditions. The TF02 can communicate using either 3.3V UART at 115200 baud or the CAN protocol. Not to mention the dust tight, water resistant enclosure looks very tactical and futuristic.
Point of Order: This product does not use laser light for ranging. Instead it contains an 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 — as is performed by the Sharp GP-series devices.
