Environment model and communication time delays of a teleoperation system are variant usually, which will induce bad performance, even instability of the system. In this paper, neural network based multiple model adaptive predictive control method is proposed to solve this problem. The whole control system is composed of predictive controller and decision controller. First of all, neural network model set of any possible environment is built up, and time forward state observer based predictive controllers are designed for all models. In succession, decision controller is designed to adaptive switch among all predictive controllers according to performance target. This method can ensure stability and performance of the system. Finally, simulation results show effectiveness of the proposed method.
