Las Vegas-based startup Halo Car said it will remove the human safety operator from behind the wheel later this year, removing the last hurdle on its way to commercial launch.

Halo Car develops self-driving systems designed to allow vehicles to navigate public streets without any human behind the wheel, but rather with an operator controlling the car remotely. The company delivers the vehicle directly to the next customer with its technology.

Halo Car will soon start using humans to remotely control vehicles through public streets and deliver them to its car-sharing service customers. These fully remote deliveries will mark the official launch of commercial operations and kick off a campaign to scale its fleet of EVs and expand beyond Las Vegas.

The unique approach to car-sharing has attracted several investors. The company said Wednesday it raised $5 million in a seed round led by climate tech fund At One Ventures, with participation from T-Mobile Ventures, Earthshot Ventures, and existing investor Boost VC. The funds will help the startup to expand into cities beyond Las Vegas and scale its fleet to 1,000 EVs by the end of 2023.
