__The key terms are defined briefly below__

**Forward Kinematics: **This is the use of the robotic structural angles of joints to determine the position and orientation of the end-effector.

**Inverse Kinematics: **Upon obtaining the position and orientation of the robotic end-effector, Inverse Kinematics allows for the initial angles of joints to be obtained. The joint angles can be determined if the end effector position and orientation is known.

**Velocity Kinematics:** This deals with the study of the impact of the velocities at the robotic links and the effect it has on the entire robotic system.

**Robot Dynamics: **This deals with the dynamics or positioning of the robot. It includes the dynamics of the rigid links, dynamics of the actuators that produce the forces and torque to drive the robot, as well as the dynamics of the system that transmits power from the actuators to the links.
