Body (Types of joint)
Respectively, a ball joint, which allows rotation around x, y, and z, a hinge joint, which allows rotation around z, and a slider joint, which allows translation along x.

– Open-loop controllers execute robot movement without feedback.
– Closed-loop controllers execute robot movement and judge progress with sensors. They can thus compensate for errors.
– An example is path-planning and PD control.
