Clearcut obstacle identification and functional products promoting sustainable forestry
Luleå University of Technology, Department of Engineering Sciences and Mathematics, Product and Production Development.

Identifiering av hinder på hyggen och Funktionella Produkter för hållbart skogsbruk (Swedish)
Abstract [en]

The work presented in this thesis is based on a growing interest in new technology and new business models in forestry that will contribute to increased revenue and greater acceptance for forest utilization while at the same time ensuring sustainability. Thus, the aim of the research presented in this thesis included development of methods, strategies and tools that support technological advancements in the area of forestry, as well as understanding the effects of introducing Functional Products in this field. The research has been conducted through analysis of the current forestry situation followed by development of a future scenario where Functional Products are used in forestry. The gap between the current situation and the future scenario was analysed and used as a base for the technology development. The results include opportunities and challenges that would arise if a Functional Product were introduced to the field of forestry, the foundation to enable clearcut obstacle identification and the theoretical possibilities for increasing site preparation effectiveness in case where ideal obstacle identification has already been conducted on the site. Future work includes development of methods and technology to enable clearcut identification, as well as addressing challenges of Functional Products in forestry.By introducing new ways of doing business through Functional Products, as well as recognising the benefit of obstacle avoidance in silvicultural operations such as site preparation or wood extraction, some of the rather urgent needs for sustainability are addressed. Paper A illustrates the opportunities and challenges that would arise if a Functional Product were introduced to the field of forestry.Paper B is the foundation for the future development of techniques enabling obstacle detection at clearcuts. It communicates the different aspects of clearcut obstacles that must be considered for obstacle detection at clearcuts to work efficiently during site preparation.Paper C shows the theoretical possibilities for increasing site preparation effectiveness in cases where ideal obstacle identification has already been conducted.

Abstract [sv]

The work presented in this thesis is based on a growing interest of new technology and new business models in forestry to increase economic revenue, find higher acceptance for forest utilization and at the same time ensure sustainability. Thus, the aim for the research presented in this thesis included development of methods, strategies and tools that support technological advancements in the area of forestry, as well as understanding the effects of introducing Functional Products in this field. The research has been conducted through analysis of the current forestry situation followed by development of a future scenario where Functional Products are used in forestry. The gap between the current situation and the future scenario was analysed and used as a base for the technology development.. The results include opportunities and challenges if a Functional Product would be introduced to the field of forestry, the foundation to enable clearcut obstacle identification and the theoretical possibilities to increase site preparation effectiveness if ideal obstacle identification already has been conducted on the site. Future work include development of methods and technology to enable clearcut identification, as well as addressing challenges of Functional Products in forestry.
