Keepout Filter Parameters¶
Keepout Filter - is a Costmap Filter that enforces robot to avoid keepout areas or stay on preferred lanes, by updating corresponding costmap layer using filter mask information.
Note: As Costmap Filters does not have the inflation layer applied to them (since inflation is not sensible for a speed or other non-occupation zone type), it may be beneficial to add a separate inflation layer into the vector of filters when using only a keepout zone. Some planners (e.g. Smac Feasible) will use the cost of the center point for a collision checking optimization before doing full SE2 footprint checks. Without inflation, the planner will not respect the Keepout Zone on it extremities – but will still respect it for the robot centers. If you wish to have a Keepout Zone for any part of the robot base while using a feasible planner, please enable the inflation layer.
<filter name>: is the corresponding plugin name selected for this type.

Time with which to post-date the transform that is published, to indicate that this transform is valid into the future. Used when filter mask and current costmap layer are in different frames.
