Abstract: Focusing on the requirements of planetary pinpoint soft landing, and based on the environmental characteristics of complex terrain for planetary landing, the main technical challenges of complex topography feature matching and autonomous navigation for planetary landing are analyzed firstly. Then, the development of complex topography feature matching and autonomous navigation for planetary landing is reviewed, and the key technologies are summarized. Finally, the future development direction of complex topography feature matching and autonomous navigation for planetary landing is prospected.

Key words: Planet exploration, Topography feature matching, Autonomous navigation, Pinpoint landing
