In this paper it is presented an integration of algorithms that permits maps construction and navigation of mobile robots. Simultaneous Localization and Mapping (SLAM) algorithm is used based on FastSLAM method. Navigation system is based on Vector Field Histogram algorithm to avoid obstacle and a spiral way trajectory method. Up to three different complex simulation maps have been used to evaluate the system.
