The present work contains a selection of research that is focused on the development of the kinematics; in this way, we can find the evolution of the kinematics in recent years, like applications in navigation systems, parallel robots, manipulators, and mobile robots. This work also includes new methods for the analysis in different applications, which are important in the proposal of new paradigms. Modeling is presented in applications oriented to a better understanding of biosystems; on the other hand, we also have applications of intelligent systems that enrich and complement the analysis of movement and position. Definitely, we hope that the present research work enriches and contributes with ideas and elements of interest for each of our readers.
