AUTOMATIC LAND VEHICLE NAVIGATION USING ROAD MAP DATA

A land navigation system has been developed that provides accurate navigation data while the vehicle is traveling on mapped roads. The system is autonomous and consists of a simple dead-reckoning navigator that is updated with stored road map data. Simulation and preliminary test results indicate that accuracies on the order of 50 feet can be achieved. Accuracy is independent of time.
