Appendix A in 1 describes a condition for stability of a telerobotic system using the multivariable Nyquist criteria derived in 2. In order to guarantee the stability of the closed loop system, Eq. (A1) in Appendix A of Ref. 1 must be guaranteed as written below:
The condition is missing in Appendix A of Ref. 1 and is added here. This condition states that as...
