public class AgentConsultant5
extends Script

This class handles the collision detection for the scene. You will have to create a new controller for every scene that contans differnt objects. VRML supplies no object-to-object collision detection so this is based on a object to object basis Step 1 - get a reference to the objects in the scene you need to check and the object you are checking against Step 2- Get the translations of the objects you want to check Step 3- Get a reference to the enviromental agent so you can get access to agent consultant Step 4- Check the distance, if they are touching if they are send the obstacle to the agent consultant Step 5 - apply the action that is returned from agent consultant
