Get started

Step 1: Order your evaluation board

Discover the full potential of smart presence detection with our evaluation kits. If you're exploring Time-of-Flight sensors for the first time, the full STM32 Nucleo kit is an excellent way to start. If you already have an STM32F4 Nucleo board, our dedicated expansion board is the ideal expansion to evaluate your Time-of-Flight sensor. For evaluation tests in real environments, our breakout boards enable easy and immediate sensor integration.

Step 2: Use the graphical user interface and define your setting parameters

Step 2: Use the graphical user interface and define your setting parameters

Use the graphical user interface (SmartPresenceDetection_EVK) to configure your application. Its user-friendly widgets allow you to adjust sensor settings, distances, and timings to fine-tune your solution. Detailed user guidelines (SmartPresenceDetection_UG) in the package provide step-by-step support through the installation and evaluation processes.

Step 3: Integrate the solution into your device

Ready to integrate the solution into your device or application? Use our precompiled libraries, which are compatible with microcontrollers running Linux, Android, and Cortex® M0+, M3, M33, M4, M7, and start shaping applications of the future.
