Title
(EN) Navigation using local overlapping maps
Abstract
(EN)

A system for autonomously navigating a vehicle may include at least one processor. The processor may be programmed to receive a first navigational map associated with a first road segment and a second navigational map, different from the first navigational map, associated with a second road segment. The first road segment and the second road segment may overlap one another at an overlap segment. The processor may be programmed to determine at least a first autonomous navigational response for the vehicle along the first road segment based on analysis of the first navigational map; at least a second autonomous navigational response for the vehicle along the second road segment based on analysis of the second navigational map; and at least a third autonomous navigational response for the vehicle in the overlap segment based on at least one of the first navigational map and the second navigational map.
