Autonomous navigation in complex environment is an important requirement for the design of a robot. Active SLAM (simultaneous localization and mapping) combining, which combine path planning with SLAM, is proposed to improve the ability of autonomous navigation in complex environment. In this paper, fully convolutional residual networks are used to recognize the obstacles to get depth image. The avoidance obstacle path is planned by Dueling DQN algorithm in the robot’s navigation; at the same time, the 2D map of the environment is built based on FastSLAM. The experiments show that the proposed algorithm can successfully identify and avoid moving and static obstacles with different quantities in the environment, and realize the autonomous navigation of the robot in a complex environment.
