Collaborative assemblies of robots are promising the next generation of robot applications by ensuring that safe and reliable robots work collectively toward a common goal. To maintain this collaboration and harmony, elective wireless communication tech- nologies are required in order to enable the robots share data and control signals amongst themselves. With the advent of artificial intelligence (AI), recent advancements in intelligent techniques for the domain of robot communications have led to improved functionality in robot assemblies, ability to take informed and coor- dinated decisions, and an overall improvement in efficiency of the entire swarm. This survey is targeted towards a comprehensive study of the convergence of AI and communication for collaborative assemblies of robots operating in the space, on the ground and in underwater environments. We identify the pertinent issues that arise in the case of robot swarms like preventing collisions, keeping connectivity between robots, maintaining the communication quality, and ensuring collaboration between robots. Machine Learning (ML) techniques that have been applied for improving dif- ferent criteria such as mobility, connectivity, quality of service (QoS) and efficient data collection for energy efficiency are then discussed from the viewpoint of their importance in the case of collaborative robot assemblies. Lastly, the paper also identifes open issues and avenues for future research.
