Calculate ambient temperature

Tags:
  1. Jan 17, 2015 #1
    Hi,

    I have two sensors measuring tyres temperatures for some time (so I receive two arrays of values). I want to calculate ambient temperature (one value per side/sensor). Could you, please, give me guidelines how to calculate it? Any help would be very appreciated.

    Thanks in advance :-)

    Of the road? Of the air? What?

    Hi, sorry for not being precise. I mean air temperature.

    Calculating outside air temperature from measurements of tire temperature? Going to be a function of speed, tire inflation pressure, road temperature, and probably a couple other things. Anything in particular keeping you from just adding another sensor and measuring it directly?

    Or relying on local weather data?
