Advanced Measurement Technologies

Complete measurement solutions – from combustion to consumption and e-power

Measurement Technologies

Combustion measurement has become a fundamental element of development methods in the automotive industry, the continuously increasing challenges of emission legislation further dictates the use of high-performance combustion measurement equipment. 

AVL has therefore developed a complete combustion analysis platform, covering pressure and optical measurement, data acquisition and online / offline data evaluation - all crank angle based and cycle by cycle! The complete measurement chain is applicable for electrified propulsion solutions, too – with unique performance and usability, serving both main propulsion systems, FC and BEV.

Furthermore, fuel consumption is becoming increasingly important as a reference value for the development of modern, highly efficient combustion engines. AVL provides comprehensive instrumentation solutions for the consumption measurement of H2, standard and alternative fuels, intake air mass, blow by, oil and urea on the testbed as well as for in applications. 

User expectations have significantly increased regarding monitoring equipment on testbeds. The combustion measurement chain is expected for easy set-up to ensure little downtimes and to perform any type of steady-state or dynamic measurements. To accelerate test procedures, new combustion and injection technologies require instrumentation devices delivering highly precise measurements even for efficient engines with low consumption levels during cyclic tests under partial load. In order to comply with internal quality and cost-saving efforts, the equipment is also expected to monitor the health and life cycle of the sensors it reads and to offer high traceability for the data it collects.

Indicom Screen

Based on detailed knowledge and experience in the methodology of combustion and e-power analysis, AVL has developed practical tools and devices to make the complex processes of an engine visible and understandable. To support all phases of the development, we offer different solutions for different tasks in development, application and calibration.

AVL has more than 50 years of know-how in the field of consumption measurement technology, technological diversity and clever modular product concepts. This know-how combined with global presence and sophisticated service and system competence have made AVL the world market leader in the field of consumption measurement technology.


We understand our profession as passion to accelerate the transformation to cleaner, more efficient and affordable mobility. Applying decades of know-how in the area of development of propulsion systems in conventional and electrified applications is underlined by industry-leading measurement solutions.
