A study has been executed for development of a robotic system for pavement cutting work. Targets for this study are l)to make the cutting work safer than the conventional method, 2)to reduce the noise level and pavement surface slurry contamination. The conventional method is examined from the point of automation and robotization. As a result, the use of diamond sawing with load sensor feedback and remote operation was found to be necessary for reducing the probability of traffic accidents and for clean work without pollution. Four robotic system images are proposed for the future. The most feasible image is now under development to evaluate its effectiveness for actual cutting work.
