In the forest industry, trees are logged and harvested by human-operated hydraulic manipulators. Eventually, these tasks are expected to be automated with optimal performance. However, with todays technology the main problem is implementation. While prototypes may have rich sensing information, real cranes lack certain sensing devices, such as encoders for position sensing. Automating these machines requires unconventional solutions. In this paper, we consider the motion planning problem, which involves a redesign of optimal trajectories, so that open loop control strategies can be applied using feed-forward control signals whenever sensing information is not available.
