Friday 9 July 2021 | 09:01 CET | News
Halo, a specialist in autonomous car technology, has launched a commercial driverless car service in the US, running on the T-Mobile 5G network of Las Vegas. With the service, visitors and residents can quickly summon a driverless all-electric Halo with the push of a button. A Halo car then arrives at the pick-up location to drive the rider to their destination. Halo started operating on the T-Mobile 5G network since it began driving on Las Vegas' public roads earlier this year.
