Short summary
The subject of this work is modeling of single-bodied wheeled mobile robots. In the past, it was shown that the kinematics of each such robot can be modeled by one out of only five different generic models. However, the precise conditions under which a model is the proper description of the kinematic capabilities of a robot were not clear. These shortcomings are eliminated in this work, leading to a simple procedure for model selection and a classification of singularities.
