Content for MappyDot


MappyDot is a highly accurate laser time-of-flight ranging sensor which provides system designers with the ability to measure highly accurate distances on platforms such as drones and robots, for collision avoidance, area mapping, distance measurement, gesture recognition, user detection and motion sensing. The MappyDot uses the VL53L0X laser time-of-flight ranging sensor from STMicroelectronics, which is a tried and tested 940nm Class 1 (eye-safe; IEC 6082501:2014) laser sensor, in conjunction with an on-board ATmega328PB microcontroller to provide a huge range of features. Use the MappyDot to prevent your drone from colliding with objects or to optimise its landing, make star trek like door laser ping sensors to open doors automatically or even create unique musical instruments.
