1. Companies working on driverless cars: Intel
This week Intel bought Israel-based driverless car technology firm Mobileye for $15.3 billion (£12.5 billion), meaning Intel will pay $63.54 (£52.39) per share.
Intel and Mobileye are already in partnership together with BMW to put a fleet of 40 autonomous BMW 7 Series cars on the road by the end of 2017.
This announcement came some months after the initial partnership began in July 2016, when BMW, Intel, and Mobileye announced plans to produce an open platform for driverless cars by 2021.
At CES 2017 in Las Vegas, Intel launched 'Go', a 5G-ready software and hardware platform designed to support the development of self-driving vehicles, along with an SDK to go with it.
