TDK Corporation has announced full distribution availability of its InvenSense SmartSonic ICU-10201 ultrasonic time-of-flight (ToF) sensor with on-chip processing, enabling the design of high- performance, low-power IoT and robotics products.

The ICU-10201 sensor offers the sensitivity required for accurate obstacle avoidance or proximity sensing, which is used in robotics, drones, and robot vacuum cleaner (RVC) devices. It is also highly relevant for products that require level sensing, such as in a liquid dispenser or coffee machine.
