Map data modeling is one of the key technologies of positioning and navigation. Hierarchical map data structure which is integrated with traffic sign information is designed based on the navigation geographic data model for autonomous navigation of the intelligent vehicle. The application example shows that the model can express road network topology subtly, and establish the association between the road network and traffic rules easily. It can not only provide static path planning by analyzing the road network structure, but also combine with the traffic sign recognition technologies to assist the intelligent vehicle to achieve dynamic navigation
