With the development of autonomous driving, lane-level maps have attracted significant attention. Since the lane-level road network is an important part of the lane-level map, the efficient, low-cost, and automatic generation of lane-level road networks has become increasingly important. We propose a new method here that generates lane-level road networks using only position information based on an autonomous vehicle and the existing lane-level road networks from the existing road-level professionally surveyed without lane details. This method uses the parallel relationship between the centerline of a lane and the centerline of the corresponding segment. Since the direct point-by-point computation is huge, we propose a method based on a trajectory-similarity-join pruning strategy (TSJ-PS). This method uses a filter-and-verify search framework. First, it performs quick segmentation based on the minimum distance and then uses the similarity of two trajectories to prune the trajectory similarity join. Next, it calculates the centerline trajectory for lanes using the simulation transformation model by the unpruned trajectory points. Finally, we demonstrate the efficiency of the algorithm and generate a lane-level road network via experiments on a real road.
