I would like to filter out the laser points that hit my robot. There are points above and below the scanner (green thing) that should be removed. I'm thinking I'm supposed to use LaserScanAngularBoundsFilter but am not sure.

Points to be filtered

There is a robot_self_filter package that allows you to filter robot links from your sensor data based on URDF description of the robot.

In the Turtlebot applications, there is a node called turtlebot_laser that filters out all points within the radius of your base. This is how Willow solved it for the Turtlebot. The only pointer I can give is directly to the code as the wiki is not updated.
