Controlling Bilateral Teleoperation systems in the presence of time-varying delays and disturbances presents a significant problem. This paper presents robust sliding mode control for slave side and traditional input state stability (ISS) controller for master side with the effects of external forces. Furthermore, synchronous control law based on wave variable and passivity based control in the presence of variable time delays. The wave variable theory enables us to consider the two-side BT systems as a unified circuit system. The attraction region in closed systems is estimated by using theoretical analysis. Offline simulation results are also implemented to verify the efficiency of the proposed controllers.
