Revolutionizing UAE Gas Stations with Robotic Arms

By: | April 30th, 2024

Redefining Convenience at the Pump

The future of filling your car’s tank in the United Arab Emirates has arrived, and it involves a robotic arm! The Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC) has begun piloting a new system that utilizes robotic gas station attendants.

Efficiency Unleashed

This technology not only replenishes your vehicle but also optimizes your time through a dedicated app. The application guarantees the exact amount of fuel needed for your journey, enhancing convenience and efficiency. Emphasizing environmental consciousness, the system prioritizes eco-friendliness and minimizes spill risks, further enhancing its appeal and utility.

Enhancing Safety and Comfort for Customers and Staff

These innovative robotic arms streamline refueling, offering convenience by handling the entire process from opening the fuel flap to filling the tank. They are efficient, reducing wait times at gas stations, and provide relief in hot climates by allowing human staff to work in more comfortable environments.

Tech Powering the Future

These robotic marvels are equipped with artificial intelligence (AI) that enables them to identify different vehicle types and adjust the refueling process accordingly. Additionally, sensors ensure safe and accurate fuel dispensing.

When you arrive at an ADNOC station, you select your fuel type and initiate the process via a touchscreen or smartphone app. A robotic arm equipped with a suitable nozzle and sensors ensures precise alignment while pumping fuel. Throughout the process, cameras and sensors monitor operations to ensure safety and accuracy. Once refueling is complete, the arm retracts the nozzle, allowing you to proceed. This innovative system is part of ADNOC’s five-year strategy to enhance the practicality of refueling cars. It aims to increase worker productivity by reducing outdoor exposure to heat and offers customers shorter wait times.
