This paper presents a collection of geometrically interesting results obtained within the last years in kinematic contexts. Special emphasis is laid on geometric objects that describe kinematic features like workspaces or singularities of robots and mechanisms.
Keywords: Kinematics, kinematic features, surfaces, kinematic mapping, workspace, singularity.
