June 21, 2007

KALAMAZOO--The new Center for Advanced Vehicle Design and Simulation in Western Michigan University's College of Engineering and Applied Sciences aims to provide breakthrough computer-simulation technology and knowledge to the motor vehicle industry, particularly in vehicle design and analysis.

Known as CAViDS, the center engages multiple industrial companies in its activities and initiatives, which support national and state economic, industry and defense needs. Establishment of the center was formally approved by WMU trustees at their meeting earlier this month.
