Proximity sensor using VL53L0x

Post by Maser » Wed Mar 18, 2020 4:53 pm

Hello

I am trying to use the VL53L0x and a Trinket M0 to sense the presens of a person.

I have got it to work meassureing distance with the given CircuitPhyton code:

import board
import busio
import adafruit_vl53l0x

i2c = busio.I2C(board.SCL, board.SDA)
vl53 = adafruit_vl53l0x.VL53L0X(i2c)
vl53.measurement_timing_budget = 20000

while True:
print('Avstand: {0} mm'.format(vl53.range))
time.sleep(1.0)

But rather than meassuring distance I would like it to give a signal on any of the io pins of the Trinket (to drive a relay or a transistor).
I have spent the day looking for such a code with limited sucsess.
Can anybody help :?:

Regards Jan S

It looks like the wrong place to ask. Better ask at the adafruit forum: https://forums.adafruit.com/
