True automation is based on a drive-thru procedure that offers a premium service without extra cost. When was the last time you got refueling service at a gas station? Just pull up to the unit and log in with your smartphone-app. A few clicks and the car is refueled in half the time, the money is payed and the receipt is in the mail. No old school credit cards or actual money. No getting out or opening windows.
Except from being faster and more convinient, it’s a real advantage when it’s bad weather or unpleasant temperatures. You don’t have to inhale the vapors or risk to get dirty either.
Drive-Thru also provides a full service for drivers with physical issues to get in and out of the car, and those who don’t want to leave children or pets alone. Some also feel it’s safer to stay in a locked car.
