1. Part - Time of Light proximity sensor

The VL53L0X is the latest product based on ST’s patented FlightSense™ technology. This is a ground-breaking technology allowing absolute distance to be measured independent of target reflectance. Instead of estimating the distance by measuring the amount of light reflected back from the object, the VL53L0X precisely measures the time the light takes to travel to the nearest object and reflect back to the sensor (Time-of-Flight).

2. Part - ST Technology drives Drones

During the next decades drones will change our life, onboard cameras will monitor unreachable regions, medicine or post could be delivered by drone. STMicroelectronics is investing to develop smart devices driving and controlling the drones. Motor driving and controlling units, communication and sensing parts were presented in this video.

3. Part - IoT development and evaluating platform

The Nucleo/shield concept is developed and optimized to help designers evaluate the latest technology (sensors, actors and conductivity) also in wearable and portable applications. The flexible concept allows to combine the chips of interest using the Arduino connectors: different shield can be plugged together, so the user can experience a real activity monitoring system and immediately begin appreciating the sensor data acquisition, as well as all of the embedded hardware and firmware features. It runs on STM32 controller family and includes the drivers to manage three sensors (LSM6DS3, LIS3MDL and LPS25HB) and the Bluetooth low energy network processor (BlueNRG-MS).
