We study the set of intrinsic singularities of flat affine systems with n−1 controls and
n states using the notion of Lie-Bäcklund atlas, previously introduced by the authors.
For this purpose, we prove two easily computable sufficient conditions to construct
flat outputs as a set of independent first integrals of distributions of vector fields,
the first one in a generic case, namely in a neighborhood of a point where the n − 1
control vector fields are independent, and the second one at a degenerate point where
p − 1 control vector fields are dependent of the n − p others, with p > 1. We show
that the set of intrinsic singularities includes the set of points where the system does
not satisfy the strong accessibility rank condition and is included in the set where the
distribution of vector fields, introduced in the generic case, is singular. We conclude
this analysis by three examples of apparent singularites of flat systems in generic and
non generic degenerate cases.
