Robots refueling cars is not a new idea. Scott Automation & Robotics’ Robofuel is an automated robotic refueling system for trucks. It has a robotic arm to refuel equipment, saving businesses time and money. Since Robofuel does not require humans to work, it can be placed on the circuit, so trucks can be refueled more efficiently.
Robofuel uses an advanced vision sensing and detection system to determine the position and orientation of the truck’s fuel tank to complete the coupling and pumping process with minimum fuel spillage. More information is available here. What do you think? Are you impressed?
