    Raspberry PI IR surface temperature sensor

      Hello,

       

      I have a Raspberry pi 3 with a MXL90614 from Sharplace. I am using it to measure the ground temperature of a race track, but its range is something like 2cm. Is there any way to make that distance longer so I can measure it at a distance? A couple of meters would be ideal, but not sure how to do it. I've tried different lenses, but if anything they have made it worse! Could I add more power?? Or could I add a constant offset to the resultant temperature??? Thank you.

       

      P.D: the sensor in the picture is inside a webcam support, but I angle it to get it close to the floor.
