I.T. Smart Systems (I.T. Group) has completed a pilot project at Novolipetsk Metallurgical Plant (NLMP), which combined two technologies: automated refueling of vehicles and automated identification of vehicles using RFID technology.
The project was implemented at a gas filling station at the Novolipetsk Metallurgical Plant's Motor Vehicles Administration Office, where support service vehicles are fueled. The pilot launch was necessary to test the project's tasks, which were set by the customer:
- transparent and accurate recordkeeping of fuel during technical and document-related operations
- reduction of losses
- savings on fuel costs
- effective planning and control of motor fuel consumption for each Kamaz and Belaz vehicle
- operator-free refueling of authorized vehicles only by using RFID tags without using paper documents and smart cards
The customer highly rated the results of the pilot project and its effectiveness. There are plans to extend the project to all similar sites and vehicles next year.
