In this work, a novel continuous command-shaping control strategy for a simple harmonic oscillator is proposed and implemented on an overhead crane model. A Wave-Form (WF) acceleration command profile is derived analytically, and its performance is validated numerically. To enhance the performance of the proposed command-shaping control strategy, a Modulated Wave-Form (MWF) acceleration command profile is derived. It was determined that the proposed Wave-Form and Modulated Wave-Form command profiles are capable of eliminating the travel and residual oscillations. Furthermore, unlike traditional impulse and step command-shaping, the proposed command profiles have smoother intermediate acceleration, velocity, and displacement profiles.
