Last month, TankPitstop was officially launched, a world's first automated fuel robot to actually work in practice. We can call it a smart robot since it recognizes the car's brand, model and type and is also equipped with a secure automated payment system.
"The TankPitstop is an automated fuel robot which allows motorists to refuel and pay without actually doing anything themselves. The innovative robotic technology will make refueling much easier. The system reduces the burden on the environment, enhances safety and, by fully automating the refueling process, makes refueling quicker and more comfortable."
Dutch Minister of Economic Affairs Maria van der Hoeven was first to use the TankPitstop which will soon be able to serve 80 percent of cars in the Netherlands. The idea actually came from the cow industry where robots milk cows.
