Determine the distance between objects edges

Any idea how I can determine the distance between the edges of two complex objects (polygons) as in the example below in a simple way?


I am trying to change some objects behavior when aproaching the edges of a big senzor object (to try to stay 'inside' the big object). To do this I need to determine the distance not between the center of objects but between their outer bounds.

You will need something like ray casting to do something like that. We are working on getting such functionality into Farseer Physics in the future.

Thanks, I am looking forward for this in the new versions.
