This paper presents a novel flow control method using a PI controller for servo control over networks. The UDP is known to be effective for motion control systems over networks such as bilateral teleoperation. However, UDP does not have a mechanism for congestion avoidance. The congestion, which causes large communication delay, jitter, and packet loss, deteriorates the performance and stability of control systems over networks. To avoid this congestion, a novel flow control method, which adjusts a packet-sending period in real time, is proposed. The validity of the proposed method is shown by simulation and experimental results.
