Abstract

See full text

Provided is a navigation system for autonomous dump trucks capable of preventing a dump truck from autonomously traveling on a carrying passage differing from the actual carrying passage even when the carrying passages for the dump truck have been altered. The navigation system is based on map data created by digitizing a map of roads on which the dump truck can travel. A control unit executes switching control between an autonomous mode to be selected when the autonomous traveling of the dump truck should be performed and a maneuver mode to be selected when the dump truck should travel according to an operator, based on version information of the map data used by the dump truck for the autonomous traveling and version information of master map data created by digitizing a map of the latest roads on which the dump truck can travel, managed by a control center.
