Chosen because: Before his move to Visteon this month, Matthias Schulze, 54, spent 20 years with Daimler. He led research and engineering in environmental perception, advanced driver assistance system development and vehicular communications. Visteon says Schulze's role includes creating "a new centralized approach to domain controller and platform development" for the advanced driver assistance system. Wells Fargo analyst David Lim said recruiting Schulze "is a clear sign of [Visteon's] commitment to active safety and autonomous drive research."
