(CNN) - Is this the future of driving?

Google released a video of a truly automatic car prototype.

The two-seat vehicle has no gas pedal, no brake pedal - not even a steering wheel. Passengers just get in and tell the car where they want to go.

According to tech website C-Net, it's part of a project Google is developing to create a self-driving car that's safer than human drivers, and it could be coming soon.

C-Net says most major automakers expect cars like this to be available by 2020.
