Practical collision detection problems require very fast algorithms. The quality of the object representation plays a key role in the efficiency of these algorithms. In this paper a new index is presented which makes it possible to compare in terms of quality of representation different algorithms that approximate an object by means of spheres. Comparative results with other indexes are provided.
