Kinematics is the branch of mechanics dealing with the motion of points and objects.

Kinematics is the study of mechanics deal with motion of points and objects without regard to the cause of the motion, such as the movement of jointed robotic arm or the movement of pistons and tappets of an engine.

Forward kinematic equations describe the final position of a robotic arm or other system based on the joint parameters.

Inverse kinematic equations describe the joint parameters necessary to move a robotic arm to a particular position.
