Use an expanding sphere to detect objects in radius, but don't create a
contact joint; instead add a force. The force should probably be
proportional to the difference between the objects velocity and the
I did this in my decades-old "carworld" ODE demo, back in 0.39 or so.
That demo has still gone defunct, but it worked a treat.
