Description : Software library for collision detection of geometric
objects in 3D space.
Collision detection is the process of detecting pairs of objects that are
intersecting or are within a given proximity of each other. SOLID contains
operations for performing intersection tests and proximity queries on a wide
variety of shape types, including: deformable triangle meshes, boxes,
ellipsoids, and convex polyhedra.
Since it exploits temporal coherence in a number of ways, SOLID is
especially useful for detecting collisions between objects that move
smoothly over time. The motions of objects are controlled by the client
application, and are not determined or affected by SOLID.
Although it can be used for physics-based simulations, SOLID is not a
physics engine by itself. SOLID leaves it up to the application programmer
how the laws of physics are implemented.
