Visual SLAM (Simultaneously Localization and Mapping) is a solution to achieve localization and mapping of robots simultaneously. Significant achievements have been made during the past decades, geography-based methods are becoming more and more successful in dealing with static environments. However, they still cannot handle a challenging environment. With the great achievements of deep learning methods in the field of computer vision, there is a trend of applying deep learning methods to

The outstanding research results of deep learning visual odometry and deep learning loop closure detect are summarized. Finally, future development directions of visual SLAM based on deep learning is prospected.
