Hey SM,
I'm an EE and I've been developing this kit for my own car. It's to know when your tires are up to operating temp. Is this something anyone else would be interested in?

Here are the features of the kit:
  • Four IR sensors
  • Narrow 10deg sensor field of view for sampling tire sections
  • Large 1 1/12 by 2 1/2 inch display
  • Weather resistant; sensors can get wet without being ruined.
  • Removable lens cap if they need cleaning or replacement
  • Extra protective lenses
  • Does both fahrenheit and celsius
  • You can adjust the emissivity of each sensor (different materials reflect light at differing rates)
  • Quality harnesses
  • DC supply is designed for difficult automotive environments with large current dumps and voltage spikes

The installation is straight forward. You drill a small hole in the wheel arch liner for the sensor to poke through. Top center is best to account for changes in tire angle.

I've build a few units and if anyone is interested just send me a PM or email me at mikes at ntisys.com
