[X3D-Public] ROUTEs can send an event to a point in the 3D space?

Collision node is for viewpoint-to-object collision detection only,
not object-to-object collision detection.

We've got a prototype in the Savage library that may be suitable
for what you want to do.


	Relative Proximity Sensor Prototype
	Paired object-to-object proximity sensor design pattern
	implemented as a reusable prototype node.

	Relative Proximity Sensor Example
	RelativeProximitySensor design pattern: example use.

essentially you ROUTE the same values to the prototype that you are
using to translate two objects.  The prototype then sends notification
events if the two objects are sufficiently close to each other.

all the best, Don
