One of the applications he tried out after inaugurating IMC 2022 was driving a 5G-enabled long-distance car set up at Swedish telecom giant Ericsson’s stand.
Using a 5G-enabled solution, PM Modi took control of the car in Sweden by getting behind the wheel set up inside Ericsson’s booth at the IMC 2022 show.
With the controls in Delhi linked to the model with 5G technology, Modi navigated an indoor track in Sweden.
Pictures of PM Modi at the wheels were shared on social media soon after inaugurating the event.

Inaugurating the four-day India Mobile Congress (IMC) 2022, Modi visited several 5G pavilions and encouraged domestic startups to build 5G use cases.
He also visited a booth of a consortium of nearly 100 domestic startups working to develop 5G solutions to solve India’s real-time problems in healthcare, education, disaster management, etc.
At the Jio pavilion, PM Modi viewed the ‘True 5G’ devices and spent time understanding the indigenous development of end-to-end 5G technology by a team of Jio engineers.
He was flanked by Telecom Minister Ashwini Vaishnaw and billionaires Mukesh Ambani of Reliance, Sunil Bharti Mittal of Bharti Airtel and Kumar Mangalam Birla of Vodafone Idea. He subsequently visited stalls of Airtel, Vodafone Idea, C-DOT and others.
