Productivity, transparency and efficiency for optimal collaboration of man, machine and material.

The Vemcon CoPilot supports the driver even in difficult work processes, providing mental and physical relief. Also inexperienced drivers work faster, safer and more precise after a short training period. What the driver feels as relief is an increase of productivity of up to 40% for the contractor. The Vemcon CoPilot automates and optimizes recurring machine movements. The assistance system ensures for example that the driver, when grading, controls the excavator arm with one single joystick axis on the push of a button, not having to move every single joint of the excavator arm. The excavator bucket is guided optimally.

Thanks to our modular technology platform, development and process expertise, OEMs realize their CoPilot with customized applications with a short-time-to market. Vemcon accompanies OEMs step by step through the automation of their machines – from analysis to series production.


The CoPilot can easily be extended with numerous functionalities via apps – and without changes to the hardware. These apps are worth money! They allow the OEM to sell new functionalities that increase the contractor’s productivity and to install them directly on the machine. The OEM thus generates sales with intelligent machines and also with apps that will reshape the future of the construction site.
