Master-slave system enables an operator to control a robot motion from a remote area. Instead of harming human lives, a slave robot can be controlled to operate in extreme and hazardous environment. We have been developing a semi-autonomous master-slave system for an underwater vehicle equipped with dual manipulators. The manipulators are manually operated and the vehicle is controlled using the previously proposed resolved acceleration control method. In our previous study, we have confirmed the effectiveness of the master-slave system through preliminary experiment. Based on the experiment, we found that for more efficient practical application, high control performance of the vehicle is extremely necessary for an operator to control the manipulators effectively. In this paper, the experiment results showing that improved control performance of the vehicle resulting to better control of manipulator's end-tip will be reported.
