Abstract: AbstractThis article examines sectoring as a methodology of improving the eciency of discrete event simulation of autonomous object movement in 3-D space. Eciency is de®ned as the ability to reduce the amount of pairwise comparisons needed to completely execute the intended system. Sectoring involves partitioning the simulation trajectory space and allows for a reduction of the number of queries required between objects in order to determine upcoming events. However, the crossing of sector boundaries becomes …
