The Fuel Station of Tomorrow
This project looks to create incremental innovation within fuel station delivery and experience.
The ENI fuel station of the tomorrow project looks to create incremental innovation within fuel station delivery and experience. While acknowledging that alternate fuel sources are the future in station design, this project looks to new experiences and technologies that will aid in the transition from fuel stations today to the stations of the future.
The design of the new experience is centered on the users and the fuel station recognize and guide them to in the whole path offering the best tailored service of each client. A pathway of LED lights leads the user and the fueling station reads the user’s license plate to know their car model and membership privileges. The windshield dashboard allows the user to start the fueling process from the car or proceed to the kiosk that allows the user to make payment using NFC technology and proceed for fueling.
The station's architecture is designed thinking about renewable energy using hexagonal shape photovoltaic panels with the ability to move with the direction of the sun maximizes receptance.
The Camera System detects the car, tracks its movement and reads the gestures of the user during the windshield display prompts.
The Payment kiosk offers three modes of payment card, cash and NFC.
Waste Receptacles are optimally shaped for the different recycling types.
The windshield Dashboard allows a seamless fueling experience for registered users. Unregistered users can make payment at the kiosk
A robotic Arm automatically starts the fueling once the payment is processed.
