On the other hand, thean ''active transformation'' is a transformation of one or more objects, with respect to the same coordinate system. For instance, the active transformationtransformations isare useful to describe successive positions of a [[rigid body]]. On the other hand, the passive transformationtransformations may be useful in human motion analysis to observe the motion of the [[tibia]] relative to the [[femur]], i.e. its motion relative to a (''local'') coordinate system which moves together with the femur, rather than a (''global'') coordinate system which is fixed to the floor.<ref name = Davidson/>
