The brave new world of remote-controlled cars is now technically possible using wireless technologies which are set to be commonplace early in the next decade, two major telecoms companies said at a test drive staged on Monday during an industry conference in Barcelona. Spanish networks operator Telefonica joined forces with Swedish network equipment maker Ericsson to demonstrate how a car could be remotely controlled around obstacles on a test track located 70 kilometers away in Tarragona using wireless networks. The driver of the vehicle took the wheel from the floor of the Fira conference center in Barcelona, on the first day of the Mobile World Congress, Europe's biggest annual industry gathering.
Spanish telecoms giant Telefonica announced a new strategy on Sunday promising to give customers back control of their own data with the help of a new digital personal assistant. The so-called "fourth platform" comes after Telefonica faced questions about its growth strategy last year following a dividend cut and asset disposals to repay debt. It can also answer questions about Telefonica services, create and track a request or manage access to the customer's wifi router.

FRANKFURT/LONDON (Reuters) - Seeking to escape a cycle of falling prices and tight regulation, big telecom operators from Vimpelcom (VIP.O) to Telefonica (TEF.MC) are set to reinvent themselves as internet players to escape the industry's straight-jacket of low growth. Next week's Mobile World Congress in Barcelona will feature phone companies in various stages of acceptance that the industry's predictable, decades-old business model based on selling data packages by the millions is running out of steam.
