Grove ToF VL53L0X - Can't get readings in serial monitor arduino

Hi All,

I am learning to use the arduino and for a current project I would like to use the ‘high accuracy grove VL53L0X’ sensor to measure the distance in mm during pressure tests. After following the steps on this website and downloading and installing the library and uploading the correct sketches to the arduino, I can’t get a reading in the serial monitor (see attached image). Eventually I would like to plot the readings in a graph but I guess that wont be possible if I can’t get this running first.

Can anyone please explain to me what I’m doing wrong? Thank you very much!

The serial port baud rate of the serial monitor should be the same as the baud rate set by your code. (Change it to 115200)
