EDCoPilot is a virtual assistant. Use it with VoiceAttack or via its UI. Over 30 panels including an external bookmarks management, course and route plotter and location searches. Display the UI in your VR headset using overlay software like Desktop+ (free on Steam). UI has same design as in game ship panel so merges nicely. Best with second monitor if non-VR. Voice is optional. Uses Windows TTS, Amazon Polly or Google Cloud TTS to talk.

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.
