collision detection
Last modified: Wednesday, September 22, 2004 

(k&-lizh´&n; di-tekt´shin) (n.) In networks, the process by which a node determines that a collision has occurred. Collisions occur with most networks, so a protocol is required to recover from such events. Ethernet uses CSMA/CD as its collision detection and recovery system.
