Real-time insight into the worksite

Compact assist

Unlock the full potential of your machine's productivity with Compact Assist, Volvo's Intelligent Compaction system for soil and compactors. Intelligent Compaction offers real-time insight into the worksite using pass mapping, temperature mapping and density calculation mapping for asphalt compaction, pass mapping and compaction mapping for soil compaction. Intelligent Compaction for asphalt compactors offers real-time insight into the worksite using temperature and pass mapping. You can also measure and keep track of density values with Volvo's ground-breaking Density Direct feature. Compact Assist for Soil offers pass and compaction mapping.

Achieve maximum efficiency

Produce more consistent, high quality compaction with Compact Assist. Maintaining consistent coverage is key to ensuring properly compacted surfaces. The Intelligent Compaction system provides real-time insight into the work using pass mapping, temperature mapping and CMV (Compaction Measurement Value) mapping, enabling the operator to eliminate any wasteful and damaging over-compaction, saving you time and money.

Control at your fingertips

Volvo Co-Pilot utilizes one of the largest and clearest images on the worksite. For a simple, easy-to-use interface, the 10” in-cab display minimizes interaction to keep the focus on operations. Tap, zoom, and select options just as you would on your own mobile tablet or smartphone.

Meet your targets

Gain real-time estimated density with Volvo's ground-breaking quality control tool. Intelligent Compaction with Density Direct (for compactors only) allows you to account for the effects of the entire paving train by calibrating to cores or an asphalt density gauge. This patented process lets you estimate the density value, with an average tolerance of +/-1.5% with proper calibration.

Maintain consistent improvement

Easily access and extract all machine, job and material data onsite or anywhere with cloud data download. Compatible with VETA, the system provides extensive detail of the performance of the roller without the need for any post processing or proprietary software. By using the saved data, you can identify areas for improvement, and maintain consistency of your targets.

A solution for every need

Receive more built-in features than anywhere on the market with the Compact Assist packages. From an integrated compaction gage through our ground breaking Density Direct feature, Volvo provides an Intelligent Compaction solution for every need.

Walk Around of the DD120B Compactor with Optional Compact Assist for Asphalt with Density Direct™

Discover the features and benefits of our DD120B our IC roller is equipped with GPS for global position, accelerometer for collecting vibration data, temperature sensors for asphalt compactors, a color display for the operator, and an onboard computer for collecting data. Our Compaction Product Manager, Mark Eckert will walk you through all of these key features and benefits of our compactor and how to use each of them.

Compact Assist for Asphalt with Density Direct™ Display on our Compactor Models

Our Co-Pilot Display is set up as a secondary display for the machine and this video will give you detailed descriptions of its features and how to use them. Some of the areas we cover in this video for the Co-Pilot Display are screen features, settings menu, work mode, and pass mapping screen. The information and data available through the Co-Pilot Display is comprehensive and immensely useful for all operators while it also provides the best Pass Mapping Screen on the market today. The operator can keep track of pass count, pass overlaps, starts and stops of the roller all from the Co-Pilot Display.
