In order to make construction machinery more versatile, development of attachments with new functions to cover manual work in construction is inevitable.
Manual work is quite often an obstacle to increasing production in construction work. Also, it can create safety problems for workers.
This paper introduces the “Mechanical Hand” which has been developed to replace manual work. The outline of this paper is as follows:
  1. (1)
    The method for finding bottlenecks in construction work and evaluation of the effectiveness of the “Mechanical Hand” in construction work.
  2. (2)
