This you have not seen before: Liquid test of the robotic refueling Vantaa
Vantaa bridge hill piloted a new totally automated robot for refueling and Easy Deli -vending trade, which is not at all the staff.The car must pre-register for the service. Fuel tank screw cap is changed at the same time korkittoman of the trunk. TEEMU GRANSTRÖM

the Finnish Liquid has in recent years become known as an innovative biofuel. Where in the car to fill up their products have evolved a lot, in a refueling event has remained for decades very similar. Liquid sees robotics and automation a lot of opportunities, where the direction of the gas station visits can be developed.

tuusula bus driving may have to pay attention to the last few weeks Vantaa Siltamäen location for the Fluid unmanned by the cold station appeared to the sparkling building. A large sea container shaped wooden building is a completely new kind of Easy Deli that goes by the name of the gas station concept, which is not at all the staff.

Around the clock open for an Easy Deli -atm transaction is easy to be moved. Although the staff is not, the trade is monitored in real time guarding motion. TEEMU GRANSTRÖM

Shopping care self-service vending machines, the product range consists of a variety of food, hygiene, and car care products. Easy Deli -the name reportedly reflects the shopping ease as well as high quality products. In practice, the self-service store at the door with your own payment card to make a desired amount of margin booking, after which the product are picking up from the vending machines. For each product, the hatch opens to the same payment card as pre-authorisation, too, was done.

Easy Deli -store is easily transferable and does not require for example any drainage. Apart from the windows, the building material is Finnish pine and birch. Since this is a store without staff, security has had to draw the design of special attention. All five of the product machine is placed on the lapped so that their trust is displayed towards the door and the large window wall. Stores are also controlled in real time guarding motion control from the centre. If necessary, the store can also be used for voice communication remotely.

the Driver does not need to remove the car

Easy Deli -store will affect the service as well ready for use, but the same Liquid-station yard to find another even more futuristic than the service concept: the robot refueling.

the robot refuelling when driving the driver is practically not need to do anything to the car for refueling. The system requires that the car is in advance registered in the service and the fuel cap has been replaced by a similar inward with folding flap, which many car manufacturers already use.

refueling event takes all of a few minutes. The first robot arm to check the fuel door is on, open the hatch with suction cups, having the right fuel gun from the rack and fill the tank. Wrong fuel the robot is not in the car to fill up, as the car of the right type of fuel is defined at the stage when it is added to the service. The car identified the car to install the chip.


Fluid Marketing & Services business area director Panu Copra tell you, that the robotic refueling experiment to the initially 50 car and users have the liquid of your staff. If piloting is successful, the aim is to bring more robotic refueling of hands traffic to the station.

”Already now, the customer can pay to fill up the Fluid station mobile, and the future of refuelling could be possible completely without the customer exits the car. The robot hand can be a good help, for example, for disabled”, Copra comment.
