The application of parallel force/position control to teleoperation systems is considered in this paper. Higher priority is given to position control at the master side and to force control at the slave side of the teleoperation system. The stability and performance of the proposed controller is investigated by analyzing the three decoupled systems obtained from projecting the closed-loop system dynamics onto the slave task-space orthogonal directions. Experimental results demonstrate the excellent force and position tracking performance provided by the new controller.
