The VL53L1X is the latest Time Of Flight (ToF) sensor to be released. It uses a VCSEL (vertical cavity surface emitting laser) to emit a class 1 IR laser and time the reflection to the target. What does all this mean? You can measure the distance to an object up to 4 meters away with millimeter resolution! That’s pretty incredible. We’ve found the precision of the sensor to be 1mm but the accuracy is around +/-5mm. Available at: https://www.sparkfun.com/products/14667
