Hello everyone, has anyone of you ever used this sensor on an ESP32?

I’m not familiar with that sensor and never tried it.
I’ve found an Arduino library for that sensor, that might be compatible with some changes: https://github.com/pololu/vl53l1x-arduino
However, I’ve also read that people are having issues to get I2C to work with that sensor: forum.pololu.com/t/vl53l1x-with-esp32-i2c-problems/17238
Unfortunately, I don’t have that sensor to experiment a sample code.
thank you for your efforts. When I have the sensor and some Test´s are done I will contact you with the results.
Do you know another sensor that works with ESP and can measure a distance of about 4 meters?
I may need to describe a little more precisely what I need the sensor for. The sensor should tell me the exact position of the car in an elevator model with about 4m height. As this is a scale model 1:5, I can’t use an ultrasonic sensor (disturbing metal).
Of course I could use an IG with a rotating cord, but I found it a bit old school.
OK have an nice weekend
Ok. Then, let me know the results.
Based on the information you provided, and after reading about the sensor here: cqrobot.wiki/index.php/VL53L1X_Distance_Sensor
It seems to be a very good fit for what you want to do.
Hello Sara, I tried the sensor and was surprised that there were no problems. I took an ESP32 from WeMos and tried the sketch you suggested… goes Now some tests and the rest of the code. Thanks for your super support. As a sensor for a measurement up to 4 meters this is a good choice.
