He's using fancy speak for saying he's making a robot arm that waters plants
As for calculating trajectories, you need to tell us what the arm looks like, dimensions, etc. You need to look into Inverse Kinematics, which, unfortunately, is way above my paltry math skills. Will your motors have encoders of some kind? what do you mean by "RC motors"?
