The fuel delivery service of UAE, Cafu has come together with self-drive mobility platform ekar to automate the fuelling process of the latter’s fleet of cars.

The new partnership targets to completely automate the refueling process between ekar and Cafu through a shared interface which will help Cafu to send an automatic refueling push via ekar’s Mobility OS during the low-usage period. 

When the vehicles’ fuel gets lesser than 25 percent then it will be signaled to Cafu which then leads to an automated order generation. Once refueled and marked completed by a Cafu pilot, ekar’s Mobility OS instantly shows the new fuel level within the app for users to check ahead of their booking.

The new refueling system will help ekar to increase its focus towards customers through real-time fuel level monitoring and automated refueling timelines.

Cafu technology interface facilitates services to connect with various businesses providing a higher level of convenience. Those with an application programming interface (API) can easily combine with this technology and service. Vehicles are fuelled during low-usage periods that work for both Cafu and ekar ensuring optimization of time with fleet refueling.

This disruptive approach works towards our long-term vision of always using the collective power of intelligence, both human and machine to create a better world through connected mobility to enable consumers to access a superior unmatched product experience.” 

Commenting on the new system, the founder of ekar Vilhelm Hedberg stated, “ekar is proud to be the world’s first self-drive mobility company to natively integrate automated mobile refueling. We are constantly working to improve our customers’ experience, and with our integration with Cafu, ekar carshare customers know that they will always have a fueled car ready to drive.”
