The star company has made a new development for the latest models called Mercedes me Fuel & Pay. This development is nothing but a solution that can pay for your Mercedes-Benz when you refuel at a gas station. And although it seems like a new technology, the American company Buick has already introduced it in some of its models in 2018, in the same way that Currently there are many electric cars that already understand the chargers themselves when it comes to calculating after recharging..
But the Mercedes me Fuel & Pay system developed by the star firm has gone one step further, since To provide more security when making transactions, use the fingerprint recognition system which is already used in most of their modern era Mercedes-Benzes.
Your Mercedes-Benz even calculates how much it will cost you to fill up your tank
This Mercedes me Fuel & Pay system is automatically activated and displayed on the central screen together with the MBUX infotainment system when the driver arrives at a connected service station and the car engine is turned off. At that moment Your Mercedes-Benz starts calculating what it will cost you to fill the tank of your car, taking into account the liters that fit and the price per liter at the said gas station..
Once the refueling operation is done, your Mercedes-Benz you will be asked to place your fingerprint on the sensor inside to authorize the payment using the credit card you previously authorized. And then the invoice itself comes via email.
This technology is the most used by brand users
To develop this Mercedes me Fuel & Pay, the German company has partnered with Mastercard, in the same way that this program will initially be available at 3,600 service stations in Germany. But the intention of Mercedes-Benz is to expand this technology around the world to adapt to the needs of its customers. And that’s it A study conducted by the German consulting firm GFK for Mastercard shows that half of people between 18 and 39 years old pay and request services directly from the car’s own infotainment system.. While 60% of users acknowledge that they will pay for fuel or electricity for their electric car using this system.
But the system created by Mercedes-Benz still has loopholes, such as the driver must leave the vehicle to start refueling or to connect the charging cable. In the same way you have to do the opposite operation after finishing. And more and more service stations are converting to self-service. And this could open up a new field of work for companies, which could develop different robots to do that work in a short period of time.
