Using a VL53L0X TOF sensor with TinyTILE-How?

Jump to solution

Hello,

I would like to us an ST VL53L0X TOF sensor with my TinyTILE board. I have connected the SCL in on my Pololu Board

https://www.pololu.com/product/2490 Pololu - VL53L0X Time-of-Flight Distance Sensor Carrier with Voltage Regulator, 200cm Max

to the I2C0_SCL and the SDA pin to I2C0_SDA pins on the TinyTILE. I have tried using the library mentioned here

https://github.com/pololu/vl53l0x-arduino GitHub - pololu/vl53l0x-arduino: Pololu Arduino library for VL53L0X time-of-flight distance sensor

but I can't get it to work.

I'm wondering if I would have better luck using these I2C examples from here

https://github.com/01org/tinyTILE-Extended-Support-Library/tree/master/examples tinyTILE-Extended-Support-Library/examples at master · 01org/tinyTILE-Extended-Support-Library · GitHub

Some basic questions.

1/ How would I use the above TILE-Extended-Support-Library in the Arduino IDE?

2/ Have I connected the sensor board to the correct I2C pins? There are 2 other pins on the TILE. Should I use these instead?

3/ How would I adapt the above Arduino libraries (I.E include header files etc).

4/ I just want to start off small so a good start would be to retrieve the model ID etc from the sensor and do a basic measurement. How would I begin?

I hope someone can help. Thanks.

Hello djsb,

 

 

Thanks for reaching out!

 

 

Since your questions are completely TinyTILE related and mostly software based, my best suggestion is that you post your question in https://www.element14.com/community/docs/DOC-82913, the TinyTILE team should be able to help you there.

 

 

If you have any doubts or questions related to the Curie Module, such as ODK related questions, please do post them here. We'll try to help you with them as much as we can.
