Modi ‘drives car in Sweden’ from Delhi

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi remotely drove a car in Sweden from the Ericsson stall using the newly rolled out 5G technology at the India Mobile Congress (IMC) in Delhi’s Pragati Maidan on Saturday.

Union Minister Piyush Goyal took to Twitter to share the glimpses.

The vehicle was set up to navigate a closed indoor course in Europe and PM Modi managed the vehicle via controls.

Narendra Modi launched 5G services at the IMC event today. The wait for 5G in India is finally over and users will be able to enjoy 5G services by Diwali. Several top companies like Airtel, Reliance Jio, and Qualcomm demonstrated their 5G services as well as their benefits to PM Narendra Modi.

An automated guided vehicle (AGV) is different from an autonomous mobile robot (AMR). It is a portable robot that follows along long marked lines or wires on the floor, or uses radio waves, vision cameras, magnets, or lasers for navigation. They are most often used in industrial applications to transport heavy materials around a large industrial building, such as a factory or warehouse.
