Multi-Hypothesis Map-Matching Using Particle Filtering

This paper describes a new Map-Matching method relying on the use of Particle Filtering. Since this method implements a multi-hypothesis road-tracking strategy, it is able to handle ambiguous situations arising at junctions or when positioning accuracy is low. In this Bayesian framework, map-matching integrity can be monitored using normalized innovation residuals. An interesting characteristic of this method is its efficient implementation since particles are constraint to the road network; the complexity is reduced to one dimension. Experimental tests carried out with real data are finally reported to illustrate the performance of the method in comparison with a ground truth. The current real-time implementation allows map-matching at 100 Hz with confidence indicators which is relevant for many map-aided advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) applications.
