A bilateral teleoperator control scheme, based on a neuro-fuzzy controller is proposed for a single-axis experimental teleoperator that is designed to validate the model responses. Simulation is used to compare the dynamic response of teleoperator control using a conventional proportional + derivative (PD) with the neuro-fuzzy structures in a positon/force control mode under various conditions. A first order Sugeno neuro-fuzzy model is applied to obtain the appropriate controller parameters through the training process. A hybrid algorithm (the root-mean-square estimator rule in combined with the back-propagation rule) was designed to adjust the membership functions and the linear polynomial equations of fuzzy inference. A single joint robotic teleoperation was modelled and the simulation results show that the neuro-fuzzy approach is promising, being robust with respect to the changes in the environmental stiffness.
