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 …
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
