This paper describes the safe control method on bilateral control system. The control stability in bilateral control under time variance communication delay does not always stand for operation safety. Local controller is needed to secure the safety when communication delay becomes large. A novel method to change over the local controller and global bilateral controller due to communication delay is suggested. At the same time, the stability of global bilateral control is also assured with the conventional stability assurance method. Experimental system that joints manipulators in Slovenia and Japan is constructed. The validity of the suggested method is shown with this experimental system.
