Abstract

As the number of vehicle owners grows continually, the challenge of searching for petrol availability increases, as not all petrol stations may have petrol available at all times. This is owed to the fact that petrol as a commodity remains relatively scarce. Therefore, this project aims to provide a platform for reporting in real-time petrol availability in Nsukka town. Hence, vehicle owners and public transporters need not waste more petrol and time searching for filling stations with petrol availability. A mobile application is developed to capture relevant real-time information about petrol availability in sampled petrol stations in Nsukka town. The application is a real-time petrol availability reporting system. The system shows a Graphic User Interface (GUI), of a simulated real-time display of petrol availability in sampled filling stations in Nsukka town. This system will help public road vehicle transporters and private vehicle owners make informed decisions on refilling their vehicle tanks from petrol stations with petrol availability closest to the users of the system when they are running out of petrol in their vehicle. Object-Oriented Analysis and Design (OOAD) methodology was used for the analysis and design while JavaScript (JS) and DART programming languages, MongoDB, a no-SQL database, were used to implement the simulation of wireless capacitive fuel level sensor reading on a mobile App, using flutter SDK.
