Center for Automotive Research at Stanford (CARS) is an interdisciplinary research community at Stanford University. CARS' vision is that by creating a community of faculty and students from a range of disciplines at Stanford with leading industry researchers, we can radically re-envision the automobile for unprecedented levels of safety, performance and enjoyment. Our mission is to develop ideas and discover, build and deploy critical innovations for the next generation of cars and drivers.
Through membership in the CARS Affiliates Program, companies join the automotive community at Stanford. Membership funds enrich this community by providing support for an executive director, administrative support, shared infrastructure for research and teaching, student project teams and new educational initiatives.
