Overview

The TFmini Plus is a short-range, time-of-flight LiDAR sensor with +/-1% accuracy over 5 m to 12 m distances, and +/-5 cm accuracy down to 10 cm.  The TFmini Plus 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 is designed with an IP65 enclosure for dust tight and water resistant functionality, with proven performance in high-vibration environments. The easiest interface is to use with the TFmini Plus is a UART communication protocol and 5V power. The sensor ships with convenient wire-to-board cables. If you don’t need the IP65 enclosure, consider the TFmini-S, which has the same range and sensitivity but at a lower cost.     

The TFmini Plus 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.
