In this paper, time domain passivity approach is extended for stable rate mode bilateral teleoperation, which often violate closed-loop passivity. Recently proposed energy based framework is implemented to make the closed-loop system passive under variable time-delay. A rate mode teleoperation experiment with mobile robot is conducted to show the feasibility of the proposed idea. Rate mode teleoperation with proposed idea showed much better performance than without case in many aspects.
