Currently, a new construction method using a robotic system is widely spreading in construction sites. This study is related to introduction of humanrobot cooperation technology which can improve convenience and productivity through the efficient interaction between a worker and a robotic system while doing glass panel installation works. Based on the analysis on glass panel installation with a glazing robot, functional requirements and approaches to address these requirements that can implement human-robot cooperative manipulation at construction sites. A practical example, which is applied to a specific target construction site, is also described in this paper. After field test at a real construction site, productivity and safety of the proposed system are compared with the existing glass panel installation system.
