Overview

The TFmini-S is a short-range, time-of-flight LiDAR sensor with +/-1% accuracy over 6 to 12 meter distances, and +/-6 cm accuracy down to 10 cm distances. The TFmini-S detects a wide variety of surfaces indoors and outdoors including water, grass, snow, trees and bushes. It sports a high sampling rate up to 1000 Hz and narrow detection cone of 3.6°.

The TFmini-S has similar specifications to the TFmini Plus, except it operates at half the resolution and does not have a dust/water resistant enclosure. The TFmini-S has a lower cost and is suitable for indoor applications. The easiest interface is to use with the TFmini-S is a UART communication protocol and 5V power.  The sensor ships with convenient wire-to-board cables.

The TFmini-S  is an ideal choice when the Ping))) Ultrasonic Sensor or Laser Ping))) Rangefinder detection distance is too short, and the LightWare LiDAR sensors have a greater range (and price point) than your application needs. For a complete comparison of all Parallax distance detection sensors see the Rangefinder Comparison Chart.
