As India gets ready to welcome 5G technology, one of the biggest beneficiaries of this technology will be the automobile industry. The deployment of the 5G network will help cars not only connect to the internet but, in theory, also connect to other vehicles and 5G-enabled infrastructure. Additionally, 5G could also allow users to remotely control cars if they have the necessary systems in place. Recently, Prime Minister Narendra Modi experienced several 5G use cases firsthand in Delhi at the India Mobile Congress. One of the experiences Prime Minister Modi had was driving a car in Sweden remotely, from Delhi itself.
Inaugurating the four-day India Mobile Congress (IMC) 2022 at Pragati Maidan in the national capital, Modi visited several 5G pavilions and encouraged domestic startups to build 5G use cases. At Swedish telecom giant Ericsson’s booth, Modi drove a car in Sweden via a 5G-enabled solution.

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, Modi witnessed the true 5G devices displayed in the pavilion and experienced the use cases through Jio Glass.
The Prime Minister also spent time understanding the indigenous development of end-to-end 5G technology by a team of Jio engineers, and how 5G can help bridge the gap between urban and rural healthcare. According to Modi, the country’s wait for the 5G technology is over and the benefits of ‘Digital India’ will soon reach every village.
After a successful 5G spectrum auction, the country is likely to witness the rollout of the much-awaited high-speed 5G mobile services around Diwali.
