Whereas a very large number of sensors are available in the automotive field, currently just a few of them, mostly proprioceptive ones, are used in telematics, automotive insurance, and mobility safety research. In this paper, we show that exteroceptive sensors, like microphones or cameras, could replace proprioceptive ones in many fields. Our main motivation is to provide the reader with alternative ideas for the development of telematics applications when proprioceptive sensors are unusable

Then, we review in detail all exteroceptive sensors of some interest for vehicle telematics, highlighting advantages, drawbacks, and availability in off-the-shelf devices. Successively, we present a list of notable telematics services and applications in research and industry like driving profiling or vehicular safety. For each of them, we report the most recent and important works relying on exteroceptive sensors, as long as the available datasets. We conclude showing open challenges using exteroceptive sensors both for industry and research.
