This paper describes the development of a prototype of automated conveyance system and the feasibility study carried out at the actual construction site. The system, consisting of highly – intelligent robots (automatic forklift, automatic wagon, automatic lift, and automatic roller conveyor) functioned harmoniously and autonomously realizing an automatic conveyance of palletised interior materials, etc. The operation of the system is controlled by the information from the bar-code attached to the pallets. The result of the feasibility study showed a conspicuous shortening of working hours, and an alleviation of heavy labors
