Abstract

Currently, fuel stations are operated manually, with a controlling unit that performs a variety of tasks. Manual fuel stations take longer to set up and require a lot of manpower. Furthermore, it is prone to errors and has a higher probability of human-caused errors. Fuel stations cannot be built in remote areas because of these restrictions. The primary purpose of this study is to build an automated fuel dispensing system that integrates RFID technology and a GSM module to address all of the problems highlighted. A customer can use an RFID-based prepaid card system to access fuel at fuel stations with this system. When the consumers need to fill their tank from a fuel dispenser, they must first place their RFID tag in close proximity to the RFID reader before entering the amount. The Arduino reads the information from the RFID system and acts accordingly depending on the requirement of the customer, as well as deducting the appropriate expanses from the user's card. Furthermore, if a consumer attempts to scan an unregistered card, the RFID system will refuse the transaction. The system can calculate the amount of fuel dispensed from the user's RFID card automatically, and send that information, as well as the card's remaining balance, to the customer's phone via GSM technology. In the event that the tag's balance falls below a certain threshold, the customer is given the option to recharge it. To store all types of data related to the fuel dispensing system, the system employs an offline database system. The RFID and Arduino Mega are used to improve the current fuel dispensing system by decreasing human labor and providing an auto-guided mechanism to complete tasks in a systematic manner. As a result, the system is extremely reliable and time saving.
