Part 1: Estimating Height with the Time of Flight Sensor#

The time-of-flight (TOF) sensor on the drone outputs a distance estimate. ROS requires all distances to be in meters.


  1. Look on the data sheets for the TOF sensor on your drone. You will be using the recommended Python library to read data from the TOF sensor. In what units does it output distances?

  2. This Adafruit product uses the same TOF sensor as your drone. What are the minimum and maximum distances that the sensor can measure?
