This article proposes a general modelling approach for locomotion dynamics of Mobile Multibody Systems (MMS) containing passive internal degrees of freedom (dofs) concentrated into (ideal or not) joints and/or distributed along deformable bodies of the system. The approach embraces the case of non-holonomic mobile multibody systems with passive wheels, the pendular climbers and the locomotion systems bio-inspired by animals that exploit the advantages of soft appendages such as the fishdoi:10.1109/tro.2013.2294733 fatcat:nmt7uvm37ncdlniltchqc2xxhy
