Generally, a higher pair is a constraint that requires a curve or surface in the moving body to maintain contact with a curve or surface in the fixed body. For example, the contact between a cam and its follower is a higher pair called a cam joint.

When a pair has a point or line contact between the links, it is called higher pair.

Example: Ball and roller bearings, cam and follower pair.
