vl53l0x max distance

Post by newb » Sat May 18, 2019 1:02 pm

Hi, I'm using @deshipu driver https://bitbucket.org/thesheep/micropyt ... c/default/ for this time of flight sensor.

All working fine, except it measures always in "normal mode" where the max distance measured is 1.2m-1.3m. The datasheet https://www.st.com/resource/en/datasheet/vl53l0x.pdf says you can use longer 2m range but with less speed (more ambient distraction), which is fine with me. However I don't see how I can switch modes in Deshipu's driver.

Can anyone help on this one?

Perhaps you can try to adapt Adafruit's CircuitPython driver
