With the rapid development of the highway, the layout of road network is gradually transformed from the tree structure to the reticular structure. In order to develop a fair charging strategy, it is necessary to split the route of vehicles accurately. In this paper, a directed graph based method for ambiguous path of highway identification with Bayesian recognition algorithm is studied. Firstly, the highway network should be modeled into a digraph structure, and the 5.8G identification point or video image identification point would be mapped to the directed graph. Then a Bayesian recognition algorithm would be used to determine the actual path of the vehicle. The algorithm uses a two-stage structure, which could provide a rapid calculation at the exit lane. The method has been applied in the highway of Jiangxi Province and has achieved valuable results.
