<p><b>Abstract</b>—Most collision detection methods developed so far are based on geometrical <it>object-space</it> interference tests. While this remains the basic mode of investigation for geometric algorithms, the requirements for interactive rates and complex geometry predominate in commercial applications. In this article, we propose a new mode of collision detection based on an <it>image-space</it> approach. This approach breaks the object-space collision detection bottleneck by distributing the computational load onto the hardware graphics pipeline. The image-space approach, in conjuction with efficient bounding-box strategies in the object-space, has the potential to handle complex object interactions at interactive rates.</p>
