The paper describes an approach to the development of the geometric path following control for a rigid body. Desired path of movement in the space is represented by an intersection of two implicit surfaces. Path following control problem is posed as a problem of maintaining the holonomic relationships between the system outputs. Control is synthesized using the differential geometrical method through nonlinear transformation of initial dynamic model. The main results presented are the model of spatial motion and relevant nonlinear control algorithms.
