  • The VL53L0X was quite disappointing in broad daylight, which was to be expected, but also under controlled office lighting conditions. The usable range, where no ambiguous triggers occurred was around 1 metre under office lighting and on late overcast afternoons and around 1,5 metres in near darkness. It helps putting a 2-3mm tube around the receptacle part of the sensor to prevent stray light from entering too soon. Also, distance varied by as much as +/- 20mm depending on colour, reflectance and porosity of the obstacle's material.

    Is this new sensor, with its tiny lenses, noticeably better? Have you had a chance to compare it to the VL530X side-by-side?

No public wish lists :(
