Matrix methods for kinematic analysis of spatial linkages were extended to provide jerk of joint pair variables, individual points, and individual links. Simple expressions for axode geometry were also developed. The methods were tested on revolute-sphericaluniversal-revolute and revolute-cylindrical-cylindrical-cylindrical closed loop mechanisms.
