In this paper, we address a new technique for automatic construction of steel structure in high-rise buildings termed RCA system (Robotics & Crane based Automated Construction System). RCA system can be divided into four core systems: 1) Monitoring and control system, 2) Material assembly system, 3) Beam assembly system, 4) Construction Factory (CF) system. Through our research, we expect that this new technique will increase the construction efficiency and it will alleviate the man power shortage problem.
