I am testing the VL53L0X time-of-flight sensor, in order to find out how resistant it is to ambient light and it turns out that if you point a light source with a high IR content (like a halogen light bulb) towards the sensor it cannot measure the distance. Even if the illuminance is very low. It simply says "No Target".
The problem gets worse the steeper the angle is with respect to the optical axis. Has anyone had this problem and found a solution?Best regardsSoren
