The Japanese company Toyota has made another interesting innovation. Its engineers came up with the idea of refueling cars while they are on the move. This approach will allow motorists to get the necessary resources for driving without wasting time on stopping. It is also assumed that the fueler will feed the batteries of electric cars. It is expected that the newest technologies of tracking will be used to find the drones that need to be refueled.
The drone refueler will be fully robotic. His work will be similar to the work of air refuelers, used in military and civil aviation for a relatively long time. The process when the refueler comes close to the flying aircraft and delivers special pumps fuel to the tanks worked out. But the details of refueling cars are not yet known. So far, this development exists only as a project. It is not known when it will be implemented. If it will happen, it will not be tomorrow.
In addition, developers will have to solve several problems. So, the first of them will be the tank lid. It is not clear whether you need to stop to open its lid, or its opening will be done automatically. It is also worth considering that the tank filler necks have different diameters, and their location on the body of the car can be different. In this regard, it is suggested that in order to work with the tanker cars must have a unified filling port.
