Imagine pulling up to a gas pump. You stay comfortably in your vehicle while it is automatically fueled and you pay with your smartphone. This amenity is a reality now, and it's one Green Fueling, Inc. has been committed to enhancing and bringing into widespread use since 1994.
Fueling automation utilizes a fully automatic solution, performed by a robot. The customer pays for service on their phone and then waits for their vehicle to be filled. They are subsequently emailed a receipt. This process saves time and money. Our patented automatic fuel dispensers are a 24-hour fuel refilling solution for all vehicles, which will cut costs across the board. Designed for urban transport networks, this solution may also be used for any large vehicle fleet. Our patented dispenser may be used for any liquid or gas automated transfer and can be customized upon request.
Shortly, our company will introduce a complete system for automatic fueling. As part of this system, our app will even let you know where robotic fill stations are located. The current fueling process is cumbersome, involving 18 individual steps, all undertaken in the elements and involving contact with dirty surfaces. This solution will make things easier, cleaner, and more affordable for businesses and individuals alike.
The History of Automated Fueling
Since 1994, the Mark IV robot has been filling municipal buses in Europe. It refills buses with diesel fuel nightly, using an arm with a long movement range to handle and fuel numerous types and sizes of buses. Robosoft SA of Bidart, France created the robot's hardware and software. These robots are still in use today.
From 2001 to 2004, TransAm Robotic Fueling had a pilot program filing buses with diesel fuel in Chicago at CTA, using a Mark V robot made by Robosoft SA. TransAm Robotic Fueling and Holtec were forerunners of our company, and we worked with them at the time. This particular system pumped in millions of gallons of fuel and performed over 25,000 cycles. We used a pressure system to prevent foaming, and an expensive bus pad was added to each bus. The PC's operating system was DOS. We learned from this experience, and we've streamlined our approach into a modern system.
Modern automated systems will use engineering from space technology, with a multi-axis robot. This robot will be able to fill a bus or car in a minute or two, without an operator. Contact us today to learn more.
