Haptic sense is indispensable for skillful operation in a telerobotic system. Bilateral control attracts considerable interest because it transfers the haptic sense to a remote place. Although it is simply composed of two manipulators, its design is complicated. This study proposes an idea that provides a new framework on design of a bilateral control system. The idea is to design the bilateral control system based on a "function", a minimum component of a system role. It enables simple and explicit design for various tasks. The features of the proposed method provide a way to design an adjustable system. Experimental results show the validity of the proposed method.
