Download Collision Detection toolkit for Virtual Environments

 

S-TCD (Surface Turbo Collision Detection) toolkit implements an efficient collision detection algorithm designed to support assembly

and maintenance simulation of complex assemblies. This approach exploits the surface knowledge, available from CAD models, to

determine intersecting surfaces. It uses Overlapping Axis-Aligned Bounding Box (OAABB) and R-tree structures to gain considerable

performance improvements.

Current experimental results show that the S-TCD is effective in determining intersecting surfaces at interactive rates with moderately

complex real case studies.
