Abstract

We study the topological and differentiable singularities of the configuration space C(Γ) of a mechanical linkage Γ in Rd, defining an inductive sufficient condition to determine when a configuration is singular. We show that this condition holds for generic singularities, provide a mechanical interpretation, and give an example of a type of mechanism for which this criterion identifies all singularities. © 2011 Elsevier B.V.
