IoT-Based Vision Techniques in Autonomous Driving

A Review


As more people drive vehicles, there is a corresponding increase in the number of deaths and injuries that happen due to road traffic accidents. Thus, various solutions have been proposed to reduce the impact of accidents. One of the most popular solutions is autonomous driving, which involves a series of embedded systems. These embedded systems assist drivers by providing crucial information on the traffic environment or by acting to protect the vehicle occupants in particular situations or to aid driving. Autonomous driving has the capacity to improve transportation services dramatically. Given the successful use of visual technologies and the implementation of driver assistance systems in recent decades, vehicles are prepared to eliminate accidents, congestion, collisions, and pollution. In addition, the IoT is a state-of-the-art invention that will usher in the new age of the Internet by allowing different physical objects to connect without the need for human interaction. The accuracy with which the vehicle's environment is detected from static images or videos, as well as the IoT connections and data management, is critical to the success of autonomous driving. The main aim of this review article is to encapsulate the latest advances in vision strategies and IoT technologies for autonomous driving by analysing numerous publications from well-known databases.
