A Map-based Lateral and Longitudinal DGPS/DR Bias Estimation Method for Autonomous Driving

Abstract—Autonomous driving requires continuous and reliable centimeter level positioning accuracy for acceptable lane level navigational performance. Centimeter level positioning accuracy cannot be achieved using a conventional DGPS/DR. To deal with the above problem this paper proposes the novel and effective bias/shift estimation of DGPS/DR. On this paper, a surveyed precise map is used that is consisting of waypoints with centimeter level positioning accuracy for the lateral and longitudinal directions. The time history of DGPS/DR waypoints are compared with the closest set of waypoints from surveyed precise map. Both a straight line fitting method and a sliding curve method have been used in order to match the shape of the DGPS/DR trajectory with surveyed precise map. For lateral and longitudinal DGPS/DR bias estimation, we have adopted a disturbance observer. Finally, experiments were conducted to prove the feasibility of the proposed algorithm for the shift estimation of DGPS/DR. This paper also compares the experimental results of GPS/DR with the ones using RTK GPS/DR during autonomous driving.

Index Terms—RTKt, DGPS bias, Map based DGPS bias estimation, DGPS based autonomous driving.
