Over the last months, ZF in partnership with UBS and IBM has been in development of the Car eWallet, a mobility transaction platform, that allows a full end-to-end integration of mobility services, vehicles and infrastructure. It will enable secure and convenient payments ‘on the go’ for services like parking, charging and now fueling based on CarPay-Diems technology.

“Connecting the Car eWallet technology to the CarPay-Diem platform will allow connected and in the future autonomous cars to pay for the fuel refills while providing the greatest driver experience.”

Thanks to this partnership, when a car equipped with the Car eWallet arrives in a fuel station, the driver selects his pump number on the display of the dashboard, he is then invited to refill the tank. When the nozzle is placed back on the pump the transaction is completed. CarPay-Diem managed the fuel station processes and confirmed the driver that he can leave the fuel station. A simple and straight forward user experience which conveniently saves time for drivers. All refill transactions remain available in the Car eWallet for later use or reporting purpose for example.

“Fueling is a high value-added for Car eWallet. In the near future drivers will be able to fuel their cars and pay from inside”

Frederic Stiernon, founder and CEO of CarPay-Diem says: “We are proud to join the Car eWallet project for the creation of the mobility services of the future. Connecting the Car eWallet technology to the CarPay-Diem platform will allow connected and in the future autonomous cars to pay for the fuel refills while providing the greatest driver experience.”

“CarPay-Diem provides an interface that allows Car eWallet to activate connected fuel pumps into the Car eWallet Service Ecosystem”, said Alexander Graf, Car eWallet Leader for ZF. “Fueling is a high value-added for Car eWallet. In the near future drivers will be able to fuel their cars and pay from inside”, he concluded.

The partners plan to launch live pilots in different regions over the next months.
