While control theory for bilateral teleoperation systems under constant time communication delay is well developed, the research on time-varying communication delay systems is still ongoing. Most wave-based approaches proposed in literature to deal with time-varying delay appear too conservative resulting in high degradation from the constant time delay case. We have already proposed a bilateral control scheme with energy balance monitoring over packet switched communication networks. In the previous work, we dealt with a simplify situation where the time-varying was in the communication channel from master to the slave. However, we did not implement and test the system with a more complex scenario in which the delay was in both communication paths. The paper presents a complete bilateral teleoperation control scheme to compensate nonlinearity introduced by an Internet like communication channel. The system implements intelligent strategies to maintain the system passivity while it deals with position drift compensation, packets loss and blackouts management. Experimental results using the proposed control scheme are shown. ©2010 IEEE.
