VL53L0X Timeout testing

I am using two VL53L0X in a project and want to test the behavior of the system when timeouts of the sensors occurring. Is there a way to produce timeouts?

It is not entirely clear what kind of timeout you are asking about, but both are relatively easy to test. The sensor itself has a timeout, which occurs when there are perceived targets in range. To test for this, you can point the sensor into the air, away from any objects. There is also a timeout dealing with I²C communication, which can happen as a result of faulty connections. You can test that by disconnecting either the SCL or SDA pin.
