VW has decided to fund the Volkswagen Automotive Innovation Laboratory at Stanford University with $5.75 million over 5 years.

VAIL will house Stanford’s CarLab, a research and teaching program that aims to “radically rethink the automobile in order to deliver unprecedented levels of safety and driver and passenger enjoyment.” VW’s own engineers will work with CarLab, as well as other academic groups housed at VAIL that explore computer science and electrical engineering, a mechanical engineering group working on cleaner engines and advanced dynamic control, and a communications group that is studying the “psychology of making cars safer and more enjoyable.”
