Although new developments from research in humanoid robotics appear more and more frequently in the mass media, robots have been used closely together around humans yet due to the safety concerns in physical interactions. Earlier robots, introduced in industrial environments, performed trivial tasks such as picking and placing, however, modern productivity and human-robot collaboration demand more complex tasks of the robots that require them to perform multi-task operations. Over the past 30 years, great progress has been made in physical interactions between humans and robots. The key areas include mechanism design, interaction detection, system sensing, control strategies, planning and optimization, self-collision avoidance, and fault handling and tolerance will be summarized. Therefore, this paper provides a review of the state of art research that enables safe physical human-robot interaction.Not Submitted
