While developing a new human-like bilateral tele-handshake system that can provide multimodal sensations including visual, kinesthetic, tactile, temperature, and auditory, this paper proposes a 4-channel energy-bounding bilateral tele-handshake framework for stable and transparent kinesthetic sensations. Instead of directly measured fore, this framework uses position-based force feedback along with position signals. Preliminary experimental results with the LTE network showed somewhat natural kinesthetic feeling while remote handshaking.
