This paper proposes abstraction and reproduction methods on bilateral control of real world force sensation, and reconstruction of real world environment as well. In the abstraction mode, a master-slave system is composed, and the action-reaction law is attained through bilateral control. Later, based on acceleration information, the force, position and velocity of both master and slave systems are estimated and obtained. In the reconstruction mode, an environmental model is reconstructed based on the obtained data from real-world. Next, by using reproduction mode on master side, the operator would feel the force sensation from the obtained environmental model. Here, the proposed system is able to store the bilateral real-world force sensation to a sensation database. Finally, the experimental results show the validity of the proposed method.
