This paper presents an automated Petrol Pump system which is very user friendly and easily operative. Today almost all petrol pumps have a microcontroller to control the electrical pump, drive the display, measure the flow and accordingly turn OFF the electrical pump. But still a person is required to collect the money. Our project is designed to eliminate this human interaction so that there is no need of workers to fill the petrol. Our project is designed to reduce this human interaction at the petrol pump. In this we are using a Smart card. It is an integrated circuit card with memory capable of making decisions. The Smartcard contains AT24C04 IC. In this system, all drivers have a card called smart card. The petrol pump is equipped with a smart card reader/write, a Buzzer will beep whenever the card is inserted into the reader. The Smart Card reader is interfaced with the microcontroller through serial interface. At the Petrol Pump, the driver swaps the card and the magnetic card reader reads the amount in the card and will display it on the LCD. The driver then enters the quantity of petrol that has to be filled using a keypad. The corresponding amount is calculated & deducted from his smartcard. The electrical pump is then turned ON according to the entered amount, fills the tank and automatically turns OFF. Thus making a lot much secure for the user to use and not to worry about carrying money.
