Flow breakout board
This product is discontinued.
The Flow breakout board is used for motion tracking and can easily be connected to any robotics project or other design.
The motion of a surface, usually the ground, is measured and is reported as delta X, delta Y by the optical flow sensor. The Z absolute distance is measured by the Time of Flight ranging sensor. It comes with an Arduino library to easily read the movement data and has a large voltage range for IO and power supply.
The Flow breakout features the VL53L0x ToF sensor and the PMW3901 optical flow sensor.
