Inverse kinematics is a subtopic of kinematics dealing with equations that describe the joint parameters necessary to move a robotic arm to a particular position. Also called motion planning.

Inverse kinematics uses kinematic equation to determine what joint parameters are required in the kinematic chain to move an end-effector into a particular position. A kinematic chain is mathematical model of the rigid bodies and joint connectors in (for example) a robotic arm.
