Pololu Digital Distance Sensor 5 cm
This small Pololu distance sensor uses LiDAR technology to locate obstacles at a distance of 5 cm or less.
A compact, simple and efficient distance sensor!
The Pololu digital distance sensor can locate objects that enter its field of vision with a high degree of certainty. It detects obstacles up to 5 cm away, although doesn’t actually measure its precise distance from these objects.
The LiDAR module embedded in this sensor enables it to maintain its detection capacities independently of an obstacle’s reflectivity (variations in field of view are minimal).
The family of Pololu LiDAR distance sensors
Need to increase your detection range? There are two additional versions of the Pololu LiDAR sensor, the first offers a range of 10 cm, the second 15 cm. Same technology, same connections, same size!
