I have a TinyTILE board that uses the intel curie module and is identified as an Arduino 101 board in the Arduino IDE and compiles Arduino based code.
I would like to us an ST VL53L0X TOF sensor with my TinyTILE board. I have connected the SCL pin on my Pololu Board
Pololu - VL53L0X Time-of-Flight Distance Sensor Carrier with Voltage Regulator, 200cm Max
to the I2C0_SCL and the SDA pin to I2C0_SDA pins on the TinyTILE. I have tried using the library mentioned here
GitHub - pololu/vl53l0x-arduino: Pololu Arduino library for VL53L0X time-of-flight distance sensor
but I can't get it to work.
I'm wondering if I would have better luck using these I2C examples from here
tinyTILE-Extended-Support-Library/examples at master · 01org/tinyTILE-Extended-Support-Library · GitHub
Some basic questions.
1/ How would I use the above TILE-Extended-Support-Library in the Arduino IDE?
2/ Have I connected the sensor board to the correct I2C pins? There are 2 other pins on the TILE. Should I use these instead?
3/ How would I adapt the above Arduino libraries (I.E include header files etc).
4/ I just want to start off small so a good start would be to retrieve the model ID etc from the sensor and do a basic measurement. How would I begin?
I hope someone can help. Thanks.
