Collision detection is an important research subject in motion analysis. Now that ellipsoid is the primitive to fit moving objects, the study of continuous collision detection of ellipsoids is important. Previous researches always use complete ellipsoids to fit objects, however, in many cases this is not satisfactory. In this paper, we use truncated quadratic surface to fit objects, and solve the problem of continuous collision detection of truncated ellipsoids.
