The TF03 is the third generation product of TF series and is a ToF (Time of Flight) LiDAR sensor capable of measuring the distance to an object as close as 10 centimeters and as far as 180 meters!!! As with all LiDAR sensors, your effective detection distance will vary depending on lighting conditions and the reflectivity of your target object. What makes this sensor special is its size & environmental operating range. Measuring only 44x43x32mm, the TF03 allows you to integrate LiDAR into applications traditionally reserved for smaller sensors and in harsh environments thanks to its IP67 rating. IP67 aka "Dust tight & water resistant" and -25~60℃ operating temp. The TF03 is easy to power at only 5V and easy to talk to using a 3.3V UART at 115200 baud.
