Short summary
The paper presents a general procedure to determine the instantaneous rotation center for planar mechanisms, or its kinematical equivalent in the case of spherical or spatial cases, from the velocity analysis of the mechanism. The procedure is based on the theoretical results of the Lie algebra, se(3), of the Euclidean group, together with the Killing and Klein forms. The paper shows that a previous contribution contains fundamental errors and it was done in order to unify the theory.
