High Performance

The TFMini-S is a upgraded ToF Single-Point LiDAR based on the TFmini.

  • Blind zone is shortened to 10cm
  • No fear of ambient light
  • Supports up to 1000Hz output
  • UART, I²C communication interfaces switchable at any time

  • Easy to Get Start

    TFmini-S lidar sensor adopts UART (TTL) / I2C communication interface, can supplied by standard 5V, and its average power consumption is 0.6w. It can be compatible with a variety of Arduino controllers. With the DFRobot Gravity IO Expansion Shield, Arduino can be plugged in directly without additional wiring.
    It can be easily integrated into the system when used with the Arduino library developed by DFRobot.
