Overview  Collision Detection Identify the intersection of objects.  Collision Response Calculate the appropriate response after collision. 2

Collision Detection  High complexity for two reasons:  Geometry is typically very complex, potentially requiring expensive testing.  Naïve solution is O(n 2 ) time complexity, since every object can potentially collide with every other object. 3

Dealing with Complexity  Two directions  Complex geometry must be simplified.  Reduce number of object pair tests. 4

Simplified Geometry  Approximate complex objects with simpler geometry, like this ellipsoid.  Simpler Shape is cheaper to test. 5

6 BV: Bounding Volume  Key idea:  Surround the object with a (simpler) bounding object (the Bounding Volume).  If something does not collide with the bounding volume, it does not collide with the object inside.  Often, to intersect two objects, first intersect their bounding volumes.

Choosing a Bounding Volume  Lots of choices, each with tradeoffs.  Tighter fitting is better. More likely to eliminate “false” intersections. 7

Choosing a Bounding Volume  Lots of choices, each with tradeoffs.  Tighter fitting is better.  Simpler shape is better. Make it faster to compute with. 8

Choosing a Bounding Volume  Lots of choices, each with tradeoffs.  Tighter fitting is better.  Simpler shape is better.  Rotation Invariant is better. Easier to update as object moves. 9

Choosing a Bounding Volume  Lots of choices, each with tradeoffs.  Tighter fitting is better.  Simpler shape is better.  Rotation Invariant is better.  Convex is usually better. Gives simpler shape, easier computation. 10

Common Bounding Volumes: Sphere  Rotationally invariant.  Usually fast to compute with.  Store: center point and radius.  Center point: object’s center of mass.  Radius: distance of farthest point on object from center of mass.  Often not very tight fit. 11

Common Bounding Volumes: Axis Aligned Bounding Box (AABB)  Very fast to compute with.  Store: max and min along x, y axes. Look at all points and record max, min.  Moderately tight fit.  Must update after rotation. 12

Common Bounding Volumes: Oriented Bounding Box (OBB)  Store rectangle oriented to best fit the object.  Store:  Center.  Orthonormal set of axes.  Extent along each axis.  Tight fit, but takes work to get good initial fit.  Computation is slower than for AABBs. 13

Testing for Collision  Will depend on type of objects and bounding volumes.  Specialized algorithms for each:  Sphere/sphere  AABB/AABB  OBB/OBB 14

Collision Test Sphere vs. Sphere  Find distance between centers of spheres. Compare to sum of sphere radii.  If distance is less, they collide.  For efficiency, check squared distance vs. square of sum of radii. d r2r2 r1r1 15

Collision Test AABB vs. AABB  Project AABBs onto given axes.  If overlapping on all axes, the boxes overlap. 16

Collision Test OBB vs. OBB  Separating Axis Theorem: Two convex shapes do not overlap if and only if there exists an axis such that the projections of the two shapes do not overlap. 17

Enumerating Separating Axes  Two convex shapes do not overlap if and only if there exists an axis such that the projections of the two shapes do not overlap.  How do we find axes to test for overlap? 18

Enumerating Separating Axes  Two convex shapes do not overlap if and only if there exists an axis such that the projections of the two shapes do not overlap. 19

Enumerating Separating Axes  2D: check axis aligned with normal of each face.  3D: check axis aligned with normal of each face and cross product of each pair of edges. 20

Reduce number of object pair tests  One solution is to partition space uniformly. 23

Reduce number of object pair tests  Another solution is the plane sweep algorithm. 24
