The Center for Advanced Vehicular Systems (CAVS) at Mississippi State University researches and develops "manufacturing and design means and methods for producing vehicles of superior quality with advanced features and functions at reduced costs and shorter product development times, exploiting the underlying technologies for broader industrial use." In the Alternative Power link, users can find Microsoft PowerPoint presentations illustrating CAVS projects with fuel cell and hydrogen powered vehicles. The website describes the Computational Manufacturing and Design Thrust project's incorporation of solid mechanics, materials, physics, and applied mathematics to improve the automotive industry as well as national defense laboratories, aerospace industry, and other governmental laboratories. Visitors can also learn about the current projects associated with traditional engineering disciplines of the Human and Systems Engineering group.
