In the future, robots will pump your gas for you. Take Sinopec’s Robot for instance: it is a robotic arm used at one gas station in the Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region to fill the tank of each car. Orders can be placed via an app.
This robotic arm has smart sensors and extends out from a regular pump to get the job done. The process takes about 180 seconds. It uses obstacle avoidance to avoid hitting vehicles and people.
