Near Sensor

See also

See the Python reference of this logic brick in KX_NearSensor.

A Near Sensor detects objects that move to within a specific distance of themselves. It can filter objects with properties, like the Collision sensor.

Note

  1. The Near sensor can detect objects “through” other objects (walls, etc.).
  2. Objects must have “Actor” enabled to be detected.

Note

The Near sensor cannot detect soft bodies. This is a limitation in Bullet, the physics library used by the Game Engine.
