    Google is getting set to hit the roads with its first ever self-driving car without a backup driver.

    The new prototype will be tested on the grounds of Moffett Field.

    Because it is federal land, Google cars can drive the network of streets on the 2,000 acre research facility without worrying about breaking any state laws.

    NASA is teaming up with Google for its own research purposes.
