With the wide application of Lidar sensors in many fields, the lidar-based SLAM technology has also developed rapidly. This paper first gives a brief overview of the application and practical significance of lidar-based SLAM technology in the fields of robotics, mapping and so on. Then, we introduce the commonly used experimental platform and data for lidar-based SLAM. According to the sensor and theoretical methods used in the classic SLAM technology scheme, the development history of SLAM technology and related algorithms are introduced. Finally, the discussion and prospects of lidar-based SLAM technology are discussed.
