Two Jet Propulsion Laboratory engineers stand with three vehicles, providing a size comparison of three generations of Mars rovers. Front and center is the flight spare for the first Mars rover, Sojourner, which landed on Mars in 1997 as part of the Mars Pathfinder Project. On the left is a Mars Exploration Rover (MER) test vehicle that is a working sibling to Spirit and Opportunity, which landed on Mars in 2004. On the right is a test rover for the Mars Science Laboratory, which landed Curiosity on Mars in 2012. Sojourner is 65 cm long. The Mars Exploration Rovers (MER) are 1.6 m long. Curiosity on the right is 3 m long.

Computational problem to find a sequence of valid configurations that moves the object from the source to destination.

Example of a workspace.
Example of a valid path.
Example of an invalid path.
Example of a road map.
Motion from the initial configuration (blue) to the final configuration of the hook, avoiding the two obstacles (red segments). The left-bottom corner of the hook has to stay on the horizontal line, which makes the hook two degrees of freedom.
Decomposition with boxes covering the configuration space: The subpaving X− is the union all red boxes and the subpaving X+ is the union of red and green boxes. The path corresponds to the motion represented above.
This figure corresponds to the same path as above but obtained with many fewer boxes. The algorithm avoids bisecting boxes in parts of the configuration space that do not influence the final result.

The term is used in computational geometry, computer animation, robotics and computer games.

Forward vs. inverse kinematics
A model of the human skeleton as a kinematic chain allows positioning using inverse kinematics.

In computer animation and robotics, inverse kinematics is the mathematical process of calculating the variable joint parameters needed to place the end of a kinematic chain, such as a robot manipulator or animation character's skeleton, in a given position and orientation relative to the start of the chain.
