Abstract—Robotics is one of the technologies used to design and operate robots. Currently, robots can be seen everywhere and in a variety of fields to obtain the most benefit from this technology; however, some fields may not be researched and studied as much as they should. Therefore, this paper presents a survey of the current studies on robotics from 2005 until now in order to find these fields. This paper finds that the aerospace, service, forestry, architectural, agricultural, and marine robotic fields have the least number of collected research papers, whereas the medical/healthcare has the most. This paper also provides some suggestions for each field; the one regarding the least researched fields is making more researches in these fields. Moreover, most papers do not discuss communication between robots, and have not made any real productions.
