Delivering an accurate representation of the lane ahead of an autonomously driving vehicle is one of the key functionalities of a good ADAS perception system. This statement holds especially for driving on a highway. Functions such as lane keeping assistance rely on a proper representation of the lanes from the perception subsystem. To achieve such a proper representation, information from various sensors such as cameras, LiDARs, radars, HD maps are taken into consideration. Up to now HD map… 
Lightweight Map-Enhanced 3D Object Detection and Tracking for Autonomous Driving
A holistic approach that integrates and utilizes the map information in system following the tracking-by-detection paradigm is proposed, and it is shown that this framework can improve the detection and tracking accuracy with mild or no increase of latency.

An advanced clustering method is provided in order to deal with the binary image feature descriptors, thus providing the opportunity of adding new classes of recognizable objects later-on: the k-majority algorithm over ORB descriptors is applied, where the Jaccard-Needham dissimilarity measure is used as a distance measure step of the algorithm.

This document reviews the most commonly used interfaces and formats at each step of a self-healing map data chain.
Applying a quantum amplification over a system for image feature matching and image recommendation
A novel approach for improving the performance of a image feature matching and recommendation system is proposed that is a major continuation of the previous work in [3]. An advanced clustering


Map-relative localization in lane-level maps for ADAS and autonomous driving
This paper proposes and compares two approaches for map-relative localization exclusively using a lane-level map and proposes a grid-based on-board fusion of road-marking information and stationary obstacles addressing the problem of missing or incomplete road- markings in urban scenarios.
Estimating localization uncertainty using multi-hypothesis map-matching on high-definition road maps
This paper presents a method measuring the confidence in the information provided by the positioning system using a metric called Map Aided Horizontal Uncertainty Level (MA-HUL), which relies on a map-matching algorithm designed to keep all likely hypotheses that are coherent with the vehicle odometry coherent.
Fusing GNSS, Dead-Reckoning, and Enhanced Maps for Road Vehicle Lane-Level Navigation
An algorithm for lane-level road vehicle navigation that integrates GNSS, dead-reckoning (odometry and gyro), and map data in the fusion process is presented, presenting better results than some state-of-the-art methods of the literature.
Map-Aided Dead-Reckoning With Lane-Level Maps and Integrity Monitoring
A dead-reckoning method implementing a particle filter to estimate a set of likely map-matched hypotheses containing the correct solution with a high probability, and an integrity monitoring method for assessing the coherence of the set of hypotheses, using the fix of a global navigation satellite system receiver.
Fusion of clothoid segments for a more accurate and updated prediction of the road geometry
Since the shape of detected road lines as well as the map data are represented by clothoid curves, the emphasis of this work is placed on the calculation, combination, and connection of clothoid segments.
Recursive 3-D Road and Relative Ego-State Recognition
The general problem of recognizing both horizontal and vertical road curvature parameters while driving along the road has been solved recursively. A differential geometry representation decoupled
Combined road prediction and target tracking in collision avoidance
This paper derives and evaluates various approximations that are needed in order to deal with the non-linearities that are introduced by an approach to detection and tracking of other vehicles and lane geometry.
Autonomous Vehicle Technologies : Localization and Mapping
The performance of the proposed method would suggest possible solution autonomous vehicles which makes use of passive sensors more, and the challenges on self-localization in urban canyon by the system integration of Passive sensors is introduced.

This paper points out the flaws in using the extended Kalman filter (EKE) and introduces an improvement, the unscented Kalman filter (UKF), proposed by Julier and Uhlman (1997). A central and vital
Unscented filtering and nonlinear estimation
The motivation, development, use, and implications of the UT are reviewed, which show it to be more accurate, easier to implement, and uses the same order of calculations as linearization.
