The Yocto-RangeFinder is a USB distance sensor (range finder).

The Yocto-RangeFinder IO can be added with a click on the (+) within the IO Connections.

Within the Inspector the Yocto-RangeFinder needs to know the connection mode (USB or Network) and the device Serial.
There is also a detection mode to run the device in different environments.

The Yocto-RangeFinder Node has three output pins.

  • Distance – corresponding to the distance measure.
  • Ambient Ir – corresponding to the ambient light estimate.
  • Temperature – corresponding to the temperature measure of the sensor itself, needed to determine when a new calibration is required.
