In order to simulate the human control behavior during a manipulation task in a remote controlled or in a X-by-wire systems, first it is necessary to measure and analyze the human control characteristics. The aim of this research is to measure the operator reaction time and analyze the human visual and force sensory feedback integration related to a manipulation task. Using the developed master-slave type experimental device it was possible to identify and build a human operator control model related to different sensory feedback. The human model related to visual feedback solely and visual/force feedback was identified using the techniques of system identification methods.
