Abstract
For a control system on a matrix Lie group with one or more configuration constraints that
are not left/right invariant, finding the combinations of (kinematic) control inputs satisfying
the motion constraints is not a trivial problem. Two methods, one coordinate-dependent and
the other coordinate-free are suggested. The first is based on the Wei-Norman formula; the
second on the calculation of the annihilator of the coadjoint action of the constraint one-form
at each point of the group manifold. The results are applied to a control system on SE(3) with
a holonomic inertial constraint involving the noncommutative part in a nontrivial way. The
difference in terms of compactness of the result between the two methods is considerable.
Keywords: matrix Lie groups, constrained motion, Wei-Norman formula, noninvariant one-
forms, coadjoint action.
