Pass mapping

Know where you've been, and where you need to go​
Just a quick glance at the pass mapping screen gives operators a clear view of their stop points and overlaps. Pass mapping guides operators through a uniform rolling pattern, without over or under compaction, so they can quickly and efficiently make adjustments to ensure they never miss a spot.​

Temperature mapping

Too hot to handle, too cold to roll​
Ensure compaction is completed at the optimum pavement temperature. A color-coded map of surface temperatures and the ability to set the maximum/minimum range enables the operator to easily avoid rolling with a mix temperature that is too hot or too cold.​

Density direct

Know you’ve done the job right​
​Accurately measure the quality of the pavement while you work, with Density Direct. Volvo’s patented solution provides a real-time estimate of the material density percentage and maps the entire job.
