Time-of-Flight (ToF) sensors, as a high-precision distance measurement technology, have shown tremendous potential applications in the fields of smart homes and healthcare in recent years. These sensors measure the distance of objects by emitting and receiving light signals, providing real-time, high-precision three-dimensional spatial information, thereby making spatial perception and interaction more precise and intelligent. In the field of smart homes, ToF sensors can improve living environments and enhance user experiences, while in healthcare, they contribute to improving diagnosis and treatment efficiency, and enhancing patient care. This article aims to explore the innovative applications of ToF sensors in these two domains, analyze how they improve the quality of home life and healthcare services, discuss the technical and ethical challenges faced in realizing these applications, as well as potential directions for future development. Through in-depth analysis, this article aims to reveal the significant role of ToF sensors in modern technology and how they shape the future of our lives and healthcare.
