Module functions

Init Functions

These initialization functions are called once on startup.

Event Functions

These event functions are called in each cycle of the module event loop.

Periodic Functions

  • sonar_vl53l1x_read()
    • Frequency in Hz: 50.
    • Autorun: LOCK
      Periodic function automatically starts after init and can't be stopped.
