In the latest episode of the AVL Lunchtime Tech Talk, we meet Michael Hirschler – the managing director of the AVL Racing-owned Piezocryst company.

Hirschler about the crucial importance of sensor design and development in modern motorsport, from the practical everyday products to more involved applications being used in EV racing.

Piezocryst specialises in tech relating to several specific areas, notably with in-cylinder pressure measurement and development for combustion engines, and also the monitoring of combustion.

Among the topics discussed by Hirschler and The Race’s Sam Smith are torque measurements and also the phenomenal tolerances and frequencies that are put through the sensors at maximum endurance levels.
