The goal of this project is to develop a functional collision detection toolkit independent of hardware and additional software. Features included: accessing and parsing data, checking for changes in the point cloud, and determining basic information on the moving points. To enhance practicality for collision detection, a collision flag able to be implemented in an external interrupt routine was included. Many of these features can be found in existing collision detection software, however, these are often costly, require specific hardware, and are challenging to implement with existing products. The collision detection software created in this project, CIP, is a Toolkit API able to work with any software or hardware that processes point clouds.
