This paper surveys the most recent published techniques in the field of Simultaneous Localization and Mapping (SLAM). In particular it is focused on the existing techniques available to speed up the process, with the purpose to handel large scale scenarios. The main research field we plan to investigate is the filtering algorithms as a way of reducing the amount of data. It seems that almost all the current approaches can not perform consistent maps for large areas, mainly due to the increase of the computational cost and due to the uncertainties that become prohibitive when the scenario becomes larger.
