STSW-IMG004 is a personal computer graphical user interface for Windows vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8.The GUI allows to control through an STM32 NUCLEO board the X-NUCLEO-6180XA1 expansion board, and up to three VL6180X-SATEL satellites boards connected to the X-NUCLEO-6180XA1.
It can be used with two NUCLEO packs, the P-NUCLEO-6180X1 based on the STM32F401RE, and the P-NUCLEO-6180X2 based on the STM32L053R8.
The VL6180X is the latest product based on ST’s patented FlightSenseTMtechnology. This is a ground-breaking technology allowing absolute distance to be measured independent of target reflectance. Instead of estimating the distance by measuring the amount of light reflected back from the object (which is significantly influenced by color and surface), the VL6180X precisely measures the time the light takes to travel to the nearest object and reflect back to the sensor (Time-of-Flight).
To install the PC GUI, refer to the following software installation user manual:“UM1876 Getting started with proximity, gesture, ambient light sensor software expansion for STM32Cube”.
