Augmented Reality Meets Artificial Intelligence in Robotics: A Systematic Review

Zahraa Bassyouni, Imad H. Elhajj
2021 Frontiers in Robotics and AI  
Concurrently, augmented reality (AR) applications are providing solutions to a myriad of robotics applications, such as demystifying robot motion intent and supporting intuitive control and feedback.  ...  This forms a solid base for increasing the efficiency of the robotic application and enhancing the user's situational awareness, safety, and acceptance of AI robots.  ...  Two other extended reality (XR) technologies exist that we need to distinguish from AR, and they are virtual reality (VR) and mixed reality (MR).  ...
