CircuitPython module for interacting with the VL53L1X distance sensor.
This driver depends on:
Please ensure all dependencies are available on the CircuitPython filesystem. This is easily achieved by downloading the Adafruit library and driver bundle or individual libraries can be installed using circup.
Adafruit VL53L1X Time of Flight Distance Sensor - ~30 to 4000mm - STEMMA QT / Qwiic
Installing from PyPI¶
On supported GNU/Linux systems like the Raspberry Pi, you can install the driver locally from PyPI. To install for current user:
pip3 install adafruit-circuitpython-vl53l1x
To install system-wide (this may be required in some cases):
sudo pip3 install adafruit-circuitpython-vl53l1x
To install in a virtual environment in your current project:
mkdir project-name && cd project-name python3 -m venv .venv source .venv/bin/activate pip3 install adafruit-circuitpython-vl53l1x
Installing to a Connected CircuitPython Device with Circup¶
Make sure that you have
circup installed in your Python environment.
Install it with the following command if necessary:
pip3 install circup
circup installed and your CircuitPython device connected use the
following command to install:
circup install vl53l1x
Or the following command to update an existing version:
See examples/vl53l1x_simpletest.py for basic usage example.
