    I'd like to know that is it possible to measure the distance between two X4 modules or not.

    I know this is not the major fuctionality of X2/X4, but I suppose if two modules can communicate each other and can recored the precise TX/RX timiming, it might be able to do two way ranging.

    Thanks,

    Hi Takuya,
    X2/X4 modules are just pulse radar, they cannot communicate with each other. You may find better solutions for this kind of application.

    Hi Charlie...
    My query is related to same thread. may i know which profile and example application (for X4M03/M300) i can refer to plot the measured distance and control a LED on/off at a fixed measured distance based on movement of the object and how can i setup that. Thanks

    Thank you Mr Charlie.
    well, i connected x4m03 to pc usng usb and trying to access it through 'putty' com port, its displaying some non-readable contents. could you please suggest some way to read the data while 'distancedemo' program is running...(i checked it with uart serial connection(115200), same result). Thanks
