This command performs the simple operation: it touches the prim in-world. However, there are several limitations:

  1. The distance. Bot view range is around 32 meters, so it may not see the object on the other side of the sim.
  2. The load time. Bot loads its surroundings within a minute after teleporting. Thus, give it 1-2 minutes to load all nearby prims. However, after loading, all new nearby prims are being detected immediately.
