SUMMARY The possibility of operating in remote environments using teleoperation systems has been considered widely in the control literature. This paper presents a review on the discrete-time teleoperation systems, including issues such as stability, passivity and time delays. Using discrete-time methods for a master-slave teleoperation system can simplify control implementation. Varieties of control schemes have been proposed for these systems and major concerns such as passivity, stability… 

An Analysis of Sampling Effect on the Absolute Stability of Discrete-time Bilateral Teleoperation Systems

Input-delay approach is used in this paper to convert the sampled-data system to a continuous-time counterpart and imposes upper bounds on the damping of robots and notifies the sampling time importance on the transparency and stability of the system.

Sensors Allocation and Observer Design for Discrete Bilateral Teleoperation Systems with Multi-Rate Sampling

A multi-rate sampling approach is proposed in this study, given the isolation of the master and slave robots in teleoperation systems which may have different hardware restrictions, and this architecture collects data through numerous sensors with various sampling rates, assuming that a continuous-time controller stabilizes a linear teleoperation system.

A composite state convergence scheme for bilateral teleoperation systems

This study proposes a reduced complexity state convergence algorithm which is termed as composite state convergence controller and shows that, with these composite and force variables, it is indeed possible to achieve the convergence of states in a desired way by strictly following the method of state convergence.

A Scaled Bilateral Teleoperation System for Robotic-Assisted Surgery with Time Delay

The master-slave teleoperated robotic systems have advanced the surgeries in the past decades. Time delay is usually caused due to the data transmission between communication channel connecting the

Control of teleoperation systems in the presence of cyber attacks: A survey

A comprehensive survey on control systems for BTSs under cyber-attacks is discussed and the main idea of the presented methods is to achieve the stability of a delayed bilateral teleoperation system in the presence of several kinds of cyber attacks.

Tracking problem in robotic teleoperation systems without force and velocity measurements in the presence of time delay

In this paper, a bilateral teleoperation system in the presence of time-varying time-delay is examined. Force feedback increases system performance as well as transparency, which in turn increases

This paper introduces a novel control framework for bilateral teleoperation system with the redundant remote robot to ensure the end-effectors’ position tracking while satisfying a sub-task control

Performance improvement of bilateral control systems using derivative of force

The contribution of the PD control in the force channel improves the teleoperation performance especially under hard-contact motion scenarios by attenuating the oscillations, hence, improving the transparency when compared to the structures using only a P force control.

FPAA-based control of bilateral teleoperation systems

A Field Programmable Analog Arrays (FPAA) based controller for bilateral teleoperation, which can achieve higher control gain than its discrete-time counterpart and it is shown that humans can successfully perform the same task with the FPAA-based controller for the teleoperation system.

Discrete-time bilateral teleoperation: modelling and stability analysis

Discretisation of a stabilising continuous-time bilateral teleoperation controller for digital implementation may not necessarily lead to stable teleoperation. While previous research has focused on

Analysis of Control Architectures for Teleoperation Systems with Impedance/Admittance Master and Slave Manipulators

A common four-channel bilateral control architecture designed for the above impedance models is extended to teleoperation systems with master and slave manipulators of either the admittance or impedance type, and control parameters that provide perfect transparency under ideal conditions are found for each type of teleoperation system.

Bilateral Teleoperation Over Unreliable Communication Networks

It is shown that passivity can be maintained in the face of varying delay and packet loss but that it depends fundamentally on the mechanism used to handle missing packets.

A Passivity Criterion for Sampled-Data Bilateral Teleoperation Systems

Enough conditions for teleoperator passivity are derived for when position error-based controllers are implemented in discrete-time because discretization causes energy leaks and does not necessarily preserve the passivity of the system.

This paper focuses on a bilateral control of teleoperation system with four-channel force-reflection (FR) algorithm and communication time delays. In this method, we propose a new system input of

The second issue discussed in the paper is the design of a control law able, under proper conditions, to stabilize the time-delay teleoperator, as well as examples of application of the stability criteria.

A novel virtual-proxy based hybrid teleoperation control framework, which can passify the Internet's communication unreliability through the virtual proxy's tunable discrete damping, thus, removing the requirement of large device damping of [1] and rendering a more flexible framework than [1], while providing explicit position feedback via the PD-action.

Discrete time passivity in bilateral teleoperation over the Internet

It is shown that passivity can be maintained in the face of varying delay and packet loss but that it depends fundamentally on the mechanism used to handle missing packets and a novel buffering and interpolation scheme is introduced which not only preserves passivity but has been shown to improve tracking performance and transparency in a single-degree-of-freedom teleoperator system.
