Map projection and localization in long distance operation

Hi all !
When the autonomous vehicle was moving over long distances, we faced the problem of increasing distortions when using UTM projection relative to the central meridian of the zone in localization and mapping tasks. The use of a private transverse Mercator projection also does not work at significant distances of movement.

This leads to the need to stop and reinitialize the system with setting new datum value.

Are there standard approaches to solve this problem?
