The authors introduce with the elemental interfaces approach an alternative to analyse mobilities of mechanisms up from early design phases based on a matrix representation. The paper compares results obtained with the already established Kutzbach Grübler criterion with results derived with the elemental interfaces approach to show its applicability. Finally, both procedures are discussed with their advantages and disadvantages.
