Volvo releases Compact Assist for Soil, providing real-time operator feedback for fast, accurate soil compaction

Compact Assist for Soil offers real-time guidance to the operator by displaying number of passes and Compaction Meter Value (CMV), showing operators the exact number of passes across the entire work area, as well as whether those areas have reached sufficient compaction. This real-time guidance ensures operators of any skill level will easily spot gaps in coverage and won't spend time on unnecessary passes once the soil is sufficiently compacted.

Intelligent Compaction, How Volvo is preparing for the new norm in paving

Real-time, visualized pass mapping and temperature mapping allow operators to ensure that they get 100 percent uniformity across the mat, avoiding over- or under-compaction, which is detrimental to road quality.

One of the most recent technological innovations in paving equipment is Intelligent Compaction (IC). IC features pass mapping and temperature mapping technology, which gives operators real-time information, including how many passes they have made over a certain area and the temperature across the mat. With its capabilities, IC offers opportunities to dramatically reduce the guesswork and improve quality control by the operator during the paving process. The value of IC is well recognized by many states and agencies in the U.S. but adoption in Canada has not taken off.
