This paper reviews the current development of artificial intelligence (AI) techniques for the application area of robot communication. The research of the control and operation of multiple robots collaboratively toward a common goal is fast growing. Communication among members of a robot team and even including humans is becoming essential in many real-world applications. The survey focuses on the AI techniques for robot communication to enhance the communication capability of the multi-robot team, making more complex activities, taking an appreciated decision, taking coordinated action, and performing their tasks efficiently. We present a comprehensive review of the intelligent solutions for robot communication which have been proposed in the literature in recent years. This survey contributes to a better understanding of the AI techniques for enhancing robot communication and sheds new lights on future research direction in the subject area.
