Mechanical systems, such as a robot for man-robot cooperation, a master-slave manipulator system, a power-steering system, an extender etc., have interaction among the system, the operator and the environment. Control of the interaction is one of the key issues for the control of such mechanical systems. The controller design of a mechanical system with man-machine-environment interaction is discussed in this paper. We model the environment and the operator, then propose a control algorithm, so that the desired interaction is realized. The proposed control algorithm specifies both the force augmentation and the maneuverability of the system.
