Our Technology

Find out how Halo remotely pilots cars by streaming real-time video and sensor data over LTE and 5G.

What if getting a rental car was as easy as getting an Uber? 

No going to a location, no waiting in line. Book a car and have it delivered to your doorstep.

With Halo, we deliver the car to you, and when you’re done, we pick it up from where you park. 

The cool part? With our HaloPilot technology, we deliver and pick up the car remotely - with the driver at our headquarters, not inside the car. That means the car arrives to you empty, and drives away empty when you finish the booking.

Technology

We have developed a proprietary kit (HaloPilot) with cameras, sensors, modems, compute and antennae.

Installing HaloPilot on a car allows us to securely stream real-time video and sensor data from that car, and to control (steer, accelerate, brake) and drive the car remotely.

We call our drivers who control the cars remotely “remote pilots”.
You can see below what their drive setup looks like.

Safety

Our Drivers

Our trained remote pilots are professional drivers with 6+ years experience driving in the city they are hired in. They receive significant training to learn how to safely remote pilot cars.

Network

We remotely pilot only in areas where we have completed significant testing to verify that the network can support our needs.

We have a deep partnership with T-Mobile, and use all three network carriers - T-Mobile, AT&T and Verizon - to ensure the best possible network coverage. 

Speed

Currently our cars follow a speed limit of 25mph when being remotely piloted.

Safe Stop System

In the case of a network failure or other critical issue, the car has a proprietary system on-board to come to a safe stop.

Beta Program

Our goal is to deliver and pick up cars contactless, with the entire experience run through the Halo app and executed remotely by our remote pilots.

Our beta in Las Vegas will allow customers to book Halo cars to be delivered remotely to their requested location. 

While the vehicle will be delivered and picked up remotely, there will be a Halo team member present - a Halo Helper. Their job is two-fold: to oversee the safe operation of the vehicle while it is being remotely piloted, and to facilitate a smooth handover of the car. 

As we collect more data and complete more deliveries and pickups, we will remove this support operator and move towards ‘driverless’ operations.
