Abstract

The mathematical properties associated with the exponential rotation matrices are reviewed. By means of two typical mechanism examples, it is demonstrated that these properties constitute a versatile analytical tool, which can be used eftectively in kinematic studies on spatial mechanical systems involving position, velocity, acceleration, and singularity analyses.
