Map Perception for Scalable Automated Driving

Map Perception for Scalable Automated Driving

Scalable and safe approaches to map based automated driving need to perceive lanes, traffic lights, signs and resulting drivable lanes allowing automation even if the HD map is outdated.

Large scale automated driving datasets are increasingly containing HD maps, matching the recorded scenarios with sensor data. This allows for the development of deep learning based perception methods for physical map features such as road boundaries, lane dividers, pedestrian crossing and so on. Additionally more abstract feautures such es the connectivity of lane segments and the relationship between lanes and traffic lights or signs can be learned.

We research methods of perceiving map features of different abstraction levels with the additional incentive to fuse verified map parts into the perception result, allowing for a safe and scalable approach to map based automated driving.
