Several years have passed since the first robot introduction into building construction sites. Earnest efforts by the involved people developed some types of construction robots in the industry. But the construction industry is understood to be a very difficult area of robotization and there is no integrated robotized building construction system yet. System Science Institute, Waseda University, has started robot re- search project group since 1982 and the research project was named WASCOR (WASeda COnstruction Robot). As the result of earnest research effort the group-has reached-a stage to propose a set of extra construction robotics technologies added to the existing ones for manufacturing industry. The author introduces some of the new technologies and suggests a plan of construction robot research laboratory to be installed in the industry.
