4 Smart Card: A Way to Control Fuel Consumption Meead Saberi K. Ferdowsi University of Mashhad, Iran Lessons from Iran
5 What is a smart card? Benefits: Information transmits in a flexible secure with minimal human intervention and standard way. Benefits: Information transmits in a flexible secure with minimal human intervention and standard way. Smart card used for health insurance in France Fuel smart card used in Iran
6 What is a fuel card? Benefits: Benefits: Need for carrying cash eliminated Increased security Filling patterns can be customized Fleet efficiency Reduced administration via management tools Smart chips cannot be cloned Fuelling limits can be enforced
7 What is a fuel card? Fuelling limits can be programmed into a fuel card to specify the following : Fuelling limits can be programmed into a fuel card to specify the following : Volume allowed per transaction Volume allowed per day Volume allowed per week Number of transactions allowed per day Number of transactions allowed per week Days of the week card can be used Times of the day card can be used Number of incorrect PIN entries allowed Card lock-out period after incorrect PINs
8 Fuel consumption in the world in 2003
9 Average fuel consumption of a vehicle in a day
10 Energy consumption in Iran Value of Energy Consumption Annual Fuel Consumption
11 National Program of Fuel Rationing Annual increase in fuel consumption %10 85 million liters in a day in million liters in a day in 2025 Before rationing …
12 National Program of Fuel Rationing Decrease in consumption %20 60 million liters in a day in 2007 After rationing … in compare to a before-rationing day 16 billion dollars of government subsides for fuel in 2001 = 27 metro lines in metropolitans and 2 million new job positions
13 National Program of Fuel Rationing Decrease of 130,000 tons of emissions in a year Saving of 235 million dollars in a year Near %20 decrease in urban trips and congestions There is no gasoline, how should I go to school/work? Public transportation, walking, biking, car sharing, and using alternative fuels are the solutions. Click to see the answer
14 National Program of Fuel Rationing Public Transportation After Fuel Rationing Metro
15 How does the Fuel Smart Card Data Archiving System work? Its similar to PORTAL! Terminals Gas Stations Local Data Center Central Data Center online data transmission Capacity: 10 million transactions in a day
16 Fuel Smart Card Program Goals Developing a valuable database of fuel consumption Developing a modern fuel distribution and consumption management system Understanding the real amount of fuel consumption of each vehicle Prevent fuel contraband to abroad Developing accurate statistical reports for policy makers Mechanized the fuel sale system in gas stations Extension of Information Technology and Electronic Trade application in the country

18 Answer! about fuelling limits So it very depends on: - Vehicle type - Fuel type (gasoline, CNG, gas oil and etc) - And where the vehicle is driven? village, small town or a metropolitan?
19 Future Researches A model to estimate the real need of fuel for each types of vehicle Economical impacts of fuel rationing on freight transportation
20 Thank you ! Biking and walking are the only fuel-free transportation modes!
