Installation of ceiling finish boards, which involves the handling of heavy gypsum boards performed on scaffold, is a laborious and dangerous work. An interior finish work robot capable of installing gypsum boards automatically was developed 1989 to relieve workers of such a dangerous, hard work. The developed interior finished work robot installs sub ceiling boards to double – layered ceilings. The tasks the robot performs are to hold, lift, position, and screw gypsum bolts on to light-weight steel frames, while travelling along the base line. This paper describe the functions of this robot and results of experiments conducted at several construction sites.
