i’m creating a driver’s simulation in Panda3D and i’m using ODE to deal with the physics part.
I need to be able to detect some kinds of infractions, like don’t stopping in a red sign or driving on the sidewalk.
The first solution i tought was to create collision’s surfaces around my street so if i receive an collision event i would know that one infraction occured.
But i don’t want the car to really collide with this “invisible” surface, i don’t want the reaction part of the physics.
Is there a way to do it with Panda3d + ODE, to detect the collision without the reaction?
Or there is other clever way to do that?
