Daimler, a German-based company behind automaker Mercedes-Benz, has begun testing self-driving trucks on select Virginia highways in a partnership with Torc Robotics, VentureBeat reports.

The trucks will be Freightliner Cascadias equipped with lidar sensors, cameras, radar, and Torc’s self-driving software, but will still have trained drivers and engineers onboard monitoring the trucks performance.
