In this paper we consider the problem of motion planning and control of a kinematically redundant manipulator, which is used on forestry machines for logging. Once a desired path is specified in the 3D world frame, a trajectory can be planned and executed such that all joints are synchronized and constrained to the Cartesian path. We introduce an optimization procedure that takes advantage of the kinematic redundancy so that time-efficient joint and velocity profiles along the path can be obtained. Differential constraints imposed by the manipulator dynamics are accounted for by employing a phase-plane technique for admissible path timings. In hydraulic manipulators, such as considered here, the velocity constraints of the individual joints are particularly restrictive. We suggest a time-independent control scheme for the planned trajectory which is built upon the standard reference tracking controllers. Experimental tests underline the benefits and efficiency of the model-based trajectory planning and show success of the proposed control strategy.
