Visteon Corp. has appointed Matthias Schulze of Daimler AG as the supplier's head of advanced driver assistance system development.

The unit deals with autonomous driving, vehicular communication and environmental perception efforts.
A Visteon statement said Schulze's role with the vehicle cockpit electronics supplier will include creating "a new centralized approach to domain controller and platform development" for the advanced driver assistance system.
Schulze will start in January in Karlsruhe, Germany, and report to Markus Schupfner, Visteon's chief technology officer.
