Rigidity of direction-length frameworks

Consider a configuration of points in $d$-dimensional Euclidean space together with a set of constraints which fix the direction or the distance between some pairs of points. Basic questions are whether the constraints imply that the configuration is unique or locally unique up to congruence, and whether it is bounded. I will describe some solutions and partial solutions to these questions.
