In this paper, a hybrid architecture is used to develop the software platform of path planning of mobile robots. It consists of four levels: the decision-making layer, the behavior layer, the command parsing layer and the hardware communication layer. The whole framework of the decision-making system is based on the global planning, which is realized by using the ant colony algorithm. In the process of movement, the robot detects the real-time local information using the sensors mounted on it,
