An Information Driven Approach For Ego-Lane Detection Using Lidar And OpenStreetMap

Abstract : Localizing the vehicle in its lane is a critical task for any autonomous vehicle. By and large, this task is carried out primarily through the identification of ego-lane markings. In recent years, ego-lane marking detection systems have been the subject of various research topics, using several inputs data such as camera or lidar sensors. Lately, the current trend is to use high accurate maps (HD maps) that provide accurate information about the road environment. However, these maps suffer from their availability and their price tag. An alternative is the use of affordable low-accurate maps. Yet, there is relatively little work on it. In this paper, we propose an information-driven approach that takes into account inaccurate prior geometry of the road from OpenStreetMap (OSM) to perform ego-lane marking detection using solely a lidar. The two major novelties presented in this paper are the use of the OSM datasets as prior for the road geometry, which reduces the research area in the lidar space, and the information-driven approach, which guarantees that the outcome of the detection is coherent to the road geometry. The robustness of the proposed method is proven on real datasets and statistical metrics are used to highlight our method's efficiency.
