Motion is a change in position of an object over time. Motion is described in terms of displacement, distance, velocity, acceleration, time and speed.

There are four basic types of motions :

1. RotaryMotion: Rotary motion is anything that moves in a circle. This type of motion was among the first discovered in ancient times. Think of a spinning wheel on which people spun wool. A car's engine works the same way. Like linear cylinders, rotary actuators are used across a wide range of industries and come in electric, pneumatic and hydraulic options.

2. Oscillating Motion: Something that oscillates moves back and forth. Anything that repeats the motion cycle after a certain period is considered to be oscillating. This type of motion is found everywhere in our world: a sprinkler system, the pendulum of a clock or even sound waves.

3. Linear Motion: Linear motion is anything that moves in a straight line, like our linear actuators. Time, as far as we know, moves in a linear fashion. Just like rotary devices, you can find linear cylinders in electric, pneumatic or hydraulic options. They have driven the field of automation, manufacturing, robotics and others into a new age, because in the past, rotary motion was the only means to create motion.

4. One More Type: There are actually five types of motion, but the last one doesn't count as an actual type. It is known as irregular motion, which means any motion that has no fixed pattern. Bees fly in an irregular motion.
