Name of Project

Canvas 3D - Collision Detection


The ability to detect any object(s) colliding with object(s).

Project Contributor(s)

  • Catherine Leung


Student Demo

  • Jan 27th (Week 3) - 10:00am


0.4 - Week of Jan 19

  • Created flag for models to have collision detection
    • Created set/get functions for flag
  • Created function for bounding sphere for models
    • Returns array of 2: Sphere Position (array of 3), Sphere Radius (float)
  • Enable callback to check for collision detection when updating scene

0.5 - Week of Feb 2

  • Performed initial test for collision
    • Check flags
    • Check for bounding sphere collision with out models with flags on
      • Collision - distance of two bounding sphere's position is less than the sum of the radius of both sphere
  • Perform 2nd test for collision
    • Test for triangle-triangle intersection test between objects

0.6 - Week of Feb 16


0.7 - Week of Mar 9


0.8 - Week of Mar 23


0.9 - Week of Apr 6


1.0 - Week of Apr 20


Project Updates

February 2009

Feb 13, 2009

  • Created a 2nd demo page which includes triangle-triangle test
    • Explain the difference between having it and not having it

Feb 12, 2009

  • C3DL meeting
    • extract the code for collision detection out of scene class and create a class of it's own
  • Working on breaking down the updates into smaller steps
    • There was a major lag in performance, need to further investigate on what's the main cause of slow down

Feb 8, 2009

  • created getNextPosition(timeStep) function
    • returns the position of the object after timeStep - ie. get the object's future position

Feb 4, 2009

  • Dropped Tomas Moller's algorithm
  • Reapplied the idea of using line-triangle intersection test from picking
    • Made two important change to get it working
      • performed a check on the variable t to make sure it's between 0-1 (the length of the edges of triangle A)
      • set the accuracy to 0.02 instead of 0.8

Feb 3, 2009

  • Implemented Tomas Moller's Triangle-Triangle Intersection Test algorithm
    • Did not work, might have bugs in the implementation
    • Causes extreme slowdown when objects with more faces exist (ie. sphere)

Feb 1, 2009

  • Triangle-Triangle test failed using Ray-Triangle test
    • Reading/Looking for other ways of doing Triangle-Triangle test

January 2009

Jan 31, 2009

  • Reused code from picking function for triangle-triangle intersection test
    • Using the 3 edges of Triangle A as lines and perform Line-Triangle intersection test

Jan 28, 2009

Jan 25, 2009

  • Started on Triangle-Triangle Test function

Jan 17, 2009

  • Perform initial test for bounding sphere collision

Jan 16, 2009

  • Created bounding sphere for models

Jan 15, 2009

  • Enable callback to collision detection function
  • Created flags for collision detections
    • Set/Get functions

Jan 13, 2009

  • Created wiki page
