Halo.Car delivers rental cars by remote control

If you want to rent an electric vehicle (EV) in Las Vegas, now you can have one delivered to you remotely, without a driver.

Driving the news: Halo.Car, which has been testing remote delivery of on-demand electric cars in Las Vegas since 2022, says its technology is now robust enough to remove the backup safety driver from its vehicles. That means an empty car will come to you, and you can then hop in and drive away.

Halo.Car launches remotely piloted rental car deliveries in Las Vegas

Halo.Car, a startup that uses remote operators to deliver rental cars to a customer’s door, has launched driverless operations in Las Vegas.

Driverless operations mean something different for Halo than they do for autonomous vehicle companies like Cruise or Waymo because Halo’s vehicles aren’t capable of self-driving.

The startup’s fleet is kitted out with a suite of six cameras, modems, antennas and other components to send data back to remote pilots at a Halo operations center. Those pilots then use the video and sensor data that’s streamed in to remotely drive the vehicles.

Halo.Car removes drivers from vehicles in downtown Las Vegas

Las Vegas startup Halo.Car has removed safety drivers from its remotely piloted vehicles, the company announced. This means that riders in certain areas of Las Vegas can now get a driverless car delivered to them. Halo.Car has been testing its remotely driven cars in Las Vegas for just under a year.

The driverless remotely piloted cars will only be available for customers in the Downtown area of Las Vegas, which is near the Arts District headquarters of Halo.Car, according to a news release from the company. Even with the removal of safety drivers, though, Halo.Car will still use a secondary vehicle to monitor how the driverless cars operate. Halo.Car will still deliver cars with safety drivers to other areas throughout Las Vegas.

Halo.Car launches driverless delivery of rental vehicles in Las Vegas

The car-share company Halo.Car says it has launched its first driverless delivery of electric vehicles in downtown Las Vegas. Safety drivers have been removed from remote-piloted vehicles in a world-first commercial launch, Halo.Car said in a press release.

Customers can book an electric vehicle to their requested location and have it delivered without a driver in the car. A second vehicle will follow to monitor the driverless vehicle to provide support or stop it if necessary. This comes after four years of testing where safety drivers were inside the vehicles during remote piloting, according to the company.

Vegas Startup Halo Car Begins Remotely Delivering Driverless EVs

Today, vehicles touting driverless tech garner a significant amount of attention in the tech space. But most companies work on this technology in a similar manner. Namely, the vehicles will feature an array of LIDAR, radar, and camera apparatus to safely navigate the streets. But others opt for an alternative approach.

Las Vegas-based startup Halo Car would fall into the latter category in its approach to hands-free driving. Halo Car has been working on perfecting its system using remote piloting technology for ridesharing. The Vegas firm aims to make electric car sharing easier and more accessible.

Why Halo is betting on a remote-operated car-sharing service

Driverless cars are often marketed as a safe and convenient means of travel that allows customers to watch movies, scroll through TikTok or nap — all without worrying about taking over control. Whether it’s in a personal vehicle (which to remind everyone, there are currently no personal autonomous cars for sale) or ride-hailing service like Cruise or Waymo, the big sales pitch is you don’t have to drive.

Halo has a different approach. The Las Vegas car-sharing startup is working toward fleet vehicle autonomy. The rub is that customers will not have access to self-driving features. Instead, the technology is only being used as a valet service for people looking for a short-term rentals.

Ever wondered how Halo.Cars move without a driver? It's all thanks to our skilled remote pilots and their extensive training. When you order a Halo.Car, two key roles work together to bring it to you: the remote pilot and the safety driver.

Gas powered cars are responsible for 17% of total annual GHG emissions in the US. Today there are more than 200m gas cars in the US, compared to less than 5m electric vehicles. Getting more people to drive EVs sooner is a critical way to reduce the 100m tonnes of CO2 emitted annually by driving.
