Simultaneous Localisation and Mapping (SLAM) is the key technology of mobile robot navigation. In this field, visual SLAM (VSLAM) has become a research hotspot in recent years. This article discusses the Lidar and visual SLAM algorithms, including: introduction on commonly used solutions and improvements of the Lidar SLAM algorithm and exploring related difficulties, the characteristics of monocular, binocular and RGB-D cameras in VSLAM, the ORB-SLAM2 system based on the feature extraction

Finally, the conclusion section discusses the development direction of multi-sensor fusion SLAM and the intelligent application of mobile robots in multiple fields.
