Abstract: Human-robot interaction (HRI) is the extensive research topic which aims at the complementary combination between the robot capabilities and human skills. The robots assist humans in terms of precision, speed, and force. The humans contribute in terms of the experience, knowledge of executing the task, intuition, and easy adaptation and learning, and understanding of control strategies. In this manuscript, a survey on the applications of HRI is presented. These applications could be industrial, medical, agricultural, servical, and educational. HRI can be found in industrial applications in handling of the workpieces in the production lines, co- manipulation tasks, welding processes, parts assembly, and painting. Assistive robotics are one from the highest profile areas in HRI. For people with the physical and the mental challenges, the robots can provide the opportunity of interaction and therapy. Furthermore, HRI can be widely applied in hospitals. Nowadays, HRI is very important to fight against the new coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. In agriculture, the robot is able to help humans with many tasks such as harvesting, seeding, fertilizing, spraying, weed detection, hauling, and mowing. HRI is quite new in the field of education. However, the robot can help children in classrooms for learning processes. In addition, the robots can help young children empathy and social skills. HRI can be found in other applications such as home use, inventory management, mining, Space exploration, and UAVs.


Keywords: Human-Robot interaction, Industrial applications, Medical and Rehabilitation applications, Precision agriculture, Education.
