TeraRanger Hub: synchronise 8 TeraRanger One distance sensors
The TeraRanger Hub by Terabee is a practical means of instantly connecting up to eight TeraRanger One ToF distance sensors simultaneously, and equipping your mobile robot or drone with a multi-directional obstacle detection system.
The data from each sensor are synchronised and communicated via a UART or USB interface. Like all the members of the TeraRanger family, this hub is a plug-and-play device – simply connect the various elements and you’re up and running.
Connecting the hub to your computer with the micro USB cable gives you access to a free, downloadable user interface allowing you to visualise the various data collected by the sensors in the form of a graph.
8 Terabee distance sensors... or more
Need more than eight ToF sensors? Terabee has come up with a simple solution – these TeraRanger hubs are stackable, meaning you can synchronise 16, 24, 32 or even more sensors.
