Implementing visual AI in gas stations not only enhances security but also contributes to improved customer experiences, operational efficiency, and better management of resources. The technology's versatility makes it a valuable investment for ensuring safety, preventing losses, and optimizing various aspects of gas station operations.

Often, customers will arrive at long queues in gas stations. Other times, forecasting for the amount of gas needed at the station may be underestimated. Finally, analytics can be utilized for the amount of staff needed to cover station duties. VAISense can help with all of these cases and more, easily adding functionality in the future with its flexible solution.

Some benefits of occupancy tracking include:

Fuel Pump Management:

  • License Plate Recognition: Visual AI can be employed for license plate recognition, enabling efficient tracking of customer visits and transactions.
  • Queue Management: By monitoring the number of cars at fuel pumps, gas stations can optimize their operations and manage customer queues effectively.

Preventing Drive-offs:

  • License Plate Recognition for Drive-offs: Visual AI can help identify vehicles attempting to drive away without paying for fuel, preventing losses due to drive-offs.

Maintenance Monitoring:

  • Equipment Health: Visual AI can monitor the condition of equipment, such as fuel pumps and safety features, and alert staff to potential issues, ensuring timely maintenance.

Customized Marketing and Services:

  • Customer Analytics: Visual AI can analyze customer demographics and behaviors, providing insights for targeted marketing and personalized services.
  • Promotion Effectiveness: Track the success of promotions and advertisements by analyzing foot traffic and customer engagement through visual data.

Operational Efficiency:

  • Staff Optimization: Visual AI can help optimize staff allocation based on real-time customer traffic, ensuring adequate service during peak hours and cost savings during slower periods.
  • Inventory Management: Monitor fuel levels in tanks and automate restocking alerts, preventing fuel shortages and optimizing inventory management.

Currently, VAISense is deploying this type of solution to a chain in the United States, helping to move cars through more efficiently. We look forward to releasing it as a vertical for other capabilities.

Despite the rise of the electric vehicle market, gas stations are still a widely popular necessity for the world and will be for some time. The same technology by VAISense can also be utilized for electric vehicle charging stations, as well as other services such as tire change centers and truck weigh centers.
