In fact, the term telemetry refers to the possibility of measuring and recording parameters in real time remotely. However, in professional competitions any form of data acquisition in real time with a radio link is prohibited, so it is not possible to view the parameters recorded by the sensors directly on a PC in the pits while the kart is still running on the track.

Having defined the true nature of these systems, we will let ourselves be guided by Alessandro Marrapese who will help us analyse the different components, their specifics and the circumstances in which they can be used.
