The robot gas pump could revolutionize fueling up your vehicle. Pumping gas during cold weather can be such a hassle, but it is necessary. Your hands get cold, your face gets chilling winds blown its way at 15 miles per hour or more and it can be exhausting. Filling up your tank will soon become a whole lot easier based on a drive-thru fuel station. We could be seeing these robot gas pumps very soon. Once the drivers have arrived at the station the pump, infrared lights will locate the fuel door and open it up with a suction cup. It will then insert an automated nozzle into the car’s tank and start fueling.

Missouri-based Husky Corporation teamed up with Swedish company Fuelmatics Systems to create this one-of-a-kind robot. The robot gas pump will offer drivers the convenience of a personal attendant without ever having to leave their vehicles. This make every driver very thankful in the winter months.
