For this challenge, we need a better way to determine the level in the refueling tank. Currently, there is a Gill level sensor (12V DC supply, 0-5V DC output and RS422 serial feed) in the tank to track fuel volume during race testing. (Reference product data sheets for exact details.) This set-up is not used in actual races due to having to hookup a bulky power supply and volt meter to take manual readings. The challenge is to come up with a solution that includes a local and rugged digital read out for fuel volume to be used during actual IndyCar races that can also wirelessly transmit real-time fuel levels to a laptop in the pit. All electronics will be external to the tank in an environmentally sealed enclosure. General racing parameters include the practice of using sealed connectors, externally braided wire, and environmentally sealed boxes that conform to IP67/68.
