VL53L0 - How it works

Do you have any plans to release a version of this sensor with a smaller FieldOfView?
As your presentation note you use a kind of diode matrix as photon input, do you plan to output the data of each diode to identify where the obstacle is?

Per example at 2 meters with a 25degree FOV the obstacle could be anywhere inside a 0.44 meters radius circle. Is is good for obstacle detection but not for obstacle avoidance because a robot with 0.5 meters diameter can't move on a 0.7 meters passage because it will detect walls.
