Helsinki, Finland: Finland is the first country in the world where robots now fill cars with gas pumps without having to get out of the car.
First of all, this robot has been installed at the Neste station and it has been developed by a start-up company called “Autofuel”. This robot selects the required fuel according to your instructions and fills the vehicle with the specified fuel without human assistance.
Although it has been tested on only one petrol pump, the scope will be extended to this year. According to the company, this is also an important step towards automatic refueling of self-driving vehicles. Founded in 2018, this company wants to save consumers and employees from the harmful effects of gasoline and automate the process of refueling.
Another important thing is that many people find it difficult to get out of the car and refuel due to some physical disability and this robot can help them immensely. Since in the western world people like to stay in the car due to severe weather and snow.
According to the company, by stopping the car, you can read your email or phone messages or even drink tea and coffee while the robot arm fills with gas. It should be noted that in these countries people who fill up gas have almost disappeared and people fill up their own fuel by paying by card.
