Google has unveiled its finished prototype of its self-driving car.

It is the first fully-functional self-driving vehicle to be put out by the technology firm.

“We’re going to be spending the holidays zipping around our test track, and we hope to see you on the streets of Northern California in the New Year,” the company said in a Google+ post. “Our safety drivers will continue to oversee the vehicle for a while longer, using temporary manual controls as needed while we continue to test and learn.”

Software and sensors take the place of human abilities, in this vehicle that is built not only to operate safely and autonomously but to take you where you want to go at the push of a button.

Google’s first prototype was unveiled in May. It had no steering wheel, brake pedal, accelerator or even headlights.

Since May, Google has been “working on different prototypes-of-prototypes, each designed to test different systems of a self-driving car—for example, the typical ‘car’ parts like steering and braking, as well as the ‘self-driving’ parts like the computer and sensors,” the company said. “We’ve now put all those systems together in this fully functional vehicle—our first complete prototype for fully autonomous driving.”
