The Center was successfully launched in July 2007.  Phase II status was formally granted beginning July 1, 2012 and going to June 30, 2017. 

Support comes through a grant by the National Science Foundation and through industry sponsorship. 

Current projects include the development of smart materials and devices for vehicle use.  This pre-competitive technology is shared among contributing members.
