Autonomous Vehicle Guidance and Control using Open Street Map and Advanced Integration Techniques

Fahad Ullah, Qaiser Habib, Muhammed Irfan, and Khawaja M. Yahya
Abstract—Autonomous Guided Vehicles (AGVs) or Autonomous Vehicles (AVs) are in widespread use in many applications such as bomb disposal, underwater exploration, industrial transport, etc. Control and guidance are vital aspects of AV research and many techniques have been proposed in literature which range from fully autonomous and intelligent systems to laser and radar guided systems and line followers. This paper presents a new technique for guiding and controlling autonomous vehicles by using the Open Street Map (OSM) map library. An AV with a built-in GPS receiver can be controlled effectively from a central computer which has the OSM powered control mechanism installed. The system proposed in this paper can control the AV in an online-mode or offline-mode depending upon the quality of the link between the AV and the central computer. A sample implementation of the system is also given.

Index Terms—Open streetmap, autonomous vehicles, autonomous guided vehicle, intelligent vehicles.
