TeraRanger Multiflex - modular and low-cost 8-sensor kit, 2m, 50Hz, 20 grams

linear sensor array

Build flexible sensor arrays for indoor robotics and IoT applications!

TeraRanger Multiflex is a modular & low-cost sensing kit. You’ll receive eight plug & play sensor modules on one flexible bus making it easy to create custom configurations and to place sensors where needed. When sensors are positioned in a configuration where crosstalk is likely, the central Hub synchronizes distance measurements from each sensor, triggering these in a sequence that avoids crosstalk. It’s the ideal – and higher performance – alternative to ultrasound for robot collision avoidance, stock monitoring and a myriad other closer range distance sensing applications, all in one convenient and easy to use kit.

Build custom sensor arrays in no time

TeraRanger Multiflex allows users to address specific sensing needs by creating custom sensor configurations with up to 8 sensors and positioning each ToF sensor where needed.

When Multiflex sensors are positioning in a configuration where crosstalk is likely, the central Hub synchronizes distance measurements from each sensor, triggering these in a sequence that avoids cross-talk.

Build Android applications with our technology!

Our Android SDK provides an easy way to communicate with Terabee sensors on an Android device. The SDK supports the following sensor models via a USB interface:

TeraRanger Evo 3M
TeraRanger Evo 60M
TeraRanger Evo 64px
TeraRanger Multiflex

The SDK can auto-detect which type of sensor is connected to a device.

To connect the sensor to an Android device, you will need a USB OTG cable and a USB backboard for each sensor.

Frequently Asked Questions

What’s the difference between Multiflex PCB and Multiflex?

We sell two versions of TeraRanger Multiflex kits. The standard Multiflex kit comes with sensors and a hub protected by a plastic cover against dust and splash. The Multiflex PCB comes without a cover. They also have different technical specifications explained in detail in the spec sheet.

Does it work outdoors?

TeraRanger Multiflex works outdoors with limited performance as it was initially designed for indoor applications.
