That depends what you mean by Collision Detection.

The only functionality in this area is, checking for overlapping bounding
volumes and ray/scene intersection.

If you need to extract intersectionpoints, normals, penetration depth
between any two given geometries/meshes, then osg is not what you need.
Look at Bullet, ODE, OPCODE, GIMPACT which are examples of libraries doing
just that (and more).
