"Self-driving cars for example cannot manage without a constant mothership connection."

They certainly could. That companies are deciding to tie those cars to the net has more to do with surveillance than technical need.

"Cleaning robots. Auto-delivery drones."

Neither of which need anything like 5G. My cleaning robot doesn't require any network connection at all (and, honestly, I have a hard time understanding what benefit it would bring).
