This chapter will present a review of Human Machine Interaction techniques for industrial applications. A set of recent HMI techniques will be provided with emphasis on multimodal interaction with industrial machines and robots. This list will include Natural Language Processing techniques and others that make use of various complementary interfaces: audio, visual, haptic or gestural, to achieve a more natural human-machine interaction. This chapter will also focus on providing examples and use cases in fields related to multimodal interaction in manufacturing, such as augmented reality. Accordingly, the chapter will present the use of Artificial Intelligence and Multimodal Human Machine Interaction in the context of STAR applications.
