PUTRAJAYA: Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad took a ride in a 5G-connected self-driving car from the Palace of Justice to Putrajaya Corporation Complex here, for the 5G showcase launch today.

He took the ride in the 5G connected Proton Exora vehicle with Communications and Multimedia Minister Gobind Singh Deo for five minutes.

The 5G autonomous car is developed by Ericsson and Celcom and in partnership with eMooVit, a high-tech start-up.
