EDCoPilot is a virtual assistant for Elite Dangerous. Think of it as an “Alexa-in-space”, but with attitude!
Imagine EDCoPilot as an AI installed in your ship that you can request information from using voice commands or via its UI, and that will tell you information as you go about your day in the 34th century.
EDCoPilot was originally created for VR users to minimise the need for Commanders to take their headsets off to find external information or to type in system names in the Galaxy Map.
It's navigable UI means it also works great for non-VR users with a second monitor, with or without voice commands!
VR users can display the UI in their headset via overlay applications such as Virtual Desktop (Oculus users), Desktop+ (free on Steam), OVRDrop or OVRToolkit.
