We truly live in a world of the future, with sensors and scanners that can scope out the world around us and tell us so many bits of information that would have typically remained completely invisible to us. One such Sensor Module, which we’re quite excited to experiment with ourselves, is the TF Mini LiDAR (ToF) Laser Range Sensor by DFRobot.

This LiDAR sensor operates in a similar fashion to Radar and Sonar Time-Of-Flight based systems, but utilises precision laser optics to survey and document the world. Commonly found on modern (expensive) cars nowadays, these Distance Sensors offer far greater accuracy than previous Radar and Sonar, and is excellent for measuring fine distances – so much so that the user can easily identify a person standing in a forest or a crab amongst a bed of sea shells.

This LiDAR sensing is the same technology that is being integrated into self-driving cars, and is now available in hobbyist format for you to play, learn and build cool projects with!
