Autonomous Technology vs Minnesota Winter: The Superbowl Challenge

     By Bob Filipczak 

The testing of autonomous vehicles has been in the news a lot, and each article makes new claims about what these vehicles can do. If there’s some skepticism among engineers in northern states such as Minnesota, it makes sense. We all want to know if this technology can stand up to the trifecta of snow, ice and salt when it comes to navigating our roads.

We are about to find out.


History & Heritage Committee

Committee chair, Melanie Fiegen, moved to South Dakota at the end of the year. If anyone is interested in chairing this committee, please contact Lisa Breu at

The committee’s mission is to understand and communicate to the section our civil engineering heritage and history. Past activities have been articles for the newsletter, preparation of ASCE Historic Landmark designation applications, and calendars highlighting Minnesota Historic Projects.

Here are links to a couple documents: The Centennial Timeline and Centennial Booklet.
