Information and communication technologies (ICTs) have a profound impact on the current state and envisioned future of automobiles. This paper presents an overview of research on ICT-based support and assistance services for the safety of future connected vehicles. A general classification and a brief description of the focus areas for research and development in this direction are given under the titles of vehicle detection, road detection, lane detection, pedestrian detection, drowsiness detection, and collision avoidance. Following an overview and taxonomy of the reviewed research articles, a categorized literature survey of safety critical applications is presented in detail. Future research directions are also highlighted.
