Please welcome Craig Shankwitz to WTI! Craig will be leading the MSU campuswide initiative to develop Connected and Autonomous Vehicles in a rural setting. Most recently, Shankwitz served as a principal R&D engineer at MTS Systems Corporation, and is also the former director of the University of Minnesota Intelligent Vehicles Laboratory. He presently serves as the vice-chairman of the Society of Automotive Engineers Truck and Bus Active Safety Systems committee.
Craig was an opening speaker and session leader at our workshop in April that focused on research opportunities in the field of autonomous and connected vehicles. Nearly 50 MSU faculty, state and local transportation officials, and private sector representatives met to share ideas on how to match the technical strengths of MSU to current and emerging research opportunities.
