Abstract

We consider the collision detection problem for general objects. A four-dimensional approach is proposed for this problem which detects exactly and in one-step when and where the earliest collision will occur between the objects. This is done by using four-dimensional sets to represent the objects in both space and time. The problem is then posed as a nonlinear programming problem. The algorithm can handle the case of a rigid body moving on a general path in 2 or 3 with simultaneous translation and rotation. Simulation results on some example problems are given, and show that the algorithm is superior to those available in the literature
