ToF proximity sensors aid in social distancing
High-accuracy FlightSense Time-of-Flight (ToF) proximity and ranging sensors from STMicroelectronics (ST) are helping prevent disease transmission in innovative products developed by customers in response to the Covid-19 pandemic

The sensors can also help users avoid contact with surfaces, including self-service touchscreens, smart faucets, and push-button door openers, located in high-traffic areas. The speed and precision of ToF sensing enable FlightSense sensors to manage basic on/off control as well as to detect and interpret gestures like tapping and swiping for smart touchless human-machine interaction.

Another advantage of the ST ToF sensors is their linear response when measuring short distances, which allows them to be used inside dispensing machines to detect the level of hand-sanitizing liquid or the number of personal protective items such as face masks.

The full portfolio of FlightSense ToF sensors is in production now.
