This study presents a review of the literature that addresses the problem of autonomous navigation in crowded indoor environments. Navigation in this type of environment is a particularly challenging task because a robot must be able to navigate autonomously without endangering nearby people. We analyze a few selected studies in this field published in the last seven years. The analysis shows that a combination of different techniques is necessary for safe navigation in this type of environment. Therefore we follow a line of previous studies to seek new solutions, or investigate and improve existing solutions to address the aforementioned problem.
