Applications and Services Using Vehicular Exteroceptive Sensors: A Survey

Modern vehicles are equipped with a myriad of sensors. Proprioceptive sensors monitor the vehicle status and operation, whereas exteroceptive ones sense the external environment, i.e., outside the vehicle’s mechanics domain. A myriad of vehicular applications, from monitoring to autonomous driving, rely on the information provided by sensors. In this article, the authors focus those which depend on exteroceptive sensors, which are critical for modern Advanced Driving Assistance Systems (ADAS) and autonomous vehicles, regardless of their automation level. Initially, the authors provide an overview of vehicular sensors and Off-the-Shelf (OTS) devices. Then, the authors focus on exteroceptive sensors, identifying different technologies, usages, pros and cons, as well as their availability in existing OTS devices. Next, the authors review the services and applications using exteroceptive sensors, especially regarding safety, navigation, and driving profiling. Besides referencing the most relevant literature on exteroceptive sensors, the authors also identify the datasets available in the literature. They conclude with open challenges using exteroceptive sensors from both industry and research perspectives.
