Semi-autonomous operation with shared control between the human operator and control computer has been developed and examinedfor a large-scalemanipulator for gripping and lifting heavy objects in unstructured dynamical environments. The technique hasbeen implemented on a electro-hydraulic actuated crane arm with redundant kinematic structure. Several modes of automation andinteraction were evaluated. Experiments show satisfactory smoothness in the transitions between autonomous, shared and manualcontrol, increased performance in log loading for inexperienced operators while experienced operators reported reduced workload.
