See animated diagram at Wikipedia CV (Constant Velocity) U-Joint -
A CV universal joint is one that transmits torque/rotation with an angular velocity ratio of unity between input and output shafts. In other words, even at an angle, the input and output shafts travel at the same (Constant) speed.
These are common in front wheel drive cars because of the angles and flexing of the driveshaft.
