A new self-driving car made its debut this week in the Lone Star State.
The Google Lexus hybrid was unveiled at the Texas Transportation Forum in Austin.
It has a spinning laser that maps out roads and identifies hazards, like other cars, pedestrians, and street lights.
The car then creates a 3D mapping system that it uses to guide itself.
Some state lawmakers are skeptical of the new technology, citing safety concerns. So far, there are no state laws on the books that address the matter.
"It's worth a discussion because government is usually reactive instead of proactive," State Rep. Joe Pickett, D-El Paso, told The Texas Tribune.
"The first time [a self-driving car] runs over a fire hydrant or, even worse, a person, there will be a flurry of bills filed," he said.
Self-driving technology is still in the research and development phase. But researchers hope that it could be on the road within the next five years.
