Volvo's Co-Pilot is a rugged, 10-inch tablet computer that acts as the interface to Volvo’s machine-specific Assist applications, which provide real-time intelligence to the operator. The first two of the Assist programs are Compact Assist for asphalt compactors and Load Assist for wheel loaders. Additional Assist functionalities will follow.
Built upon an Android operating system — the platform is designed in a way that makes it easily scalable as future software updates, additional functionality and new applications are developed. The system is 3G-compatible when equipped with a SIM Card, allowing for the system to automatically and wirelessly receive software updates without any required action from the owner or operator.
Co-Pilot was honored as “Most Innovative Human-Machine Interface (HMI) Feature” with an award presented at the 2016 Car HMI on June 20, 2016 in Berlin, Germany.
