There is a UART and an I2C version

The tfmini is an IR lidar sensor. There is a UART and an I2C version, quite at the same price.
For my project, I need 2 tfmini hooked up to an Arduino UNO with a +/- 1m cable.

As I am no specialist of communication protocols, I’d like to know what could be the theoretical pros and cons of using either of these protocols (mostly regarding reliability and the cables lengths, but I might miss some other important criteria).

Welcome to the forum. I would suggest that you read this thread that covers I2C, UART and SPI.
