Record identifier of LinkageData. Stores the independent kinematic variables of the linkage
  • $LDDrivingVariables record is a list of Rule. The left side of the rule is the symbol of the variable, while the right side is the current value of the variable. Example: {q1→ 12, q2}
  • The number of driving variables is equal with the mobility of the mechanism.
  • The driving variables define the pose of the linkage. By changing the value of the driving variable the linkage can be animated.
