Hi ROS developers,

I can't find any documentation or comments concerning the function

void costmap_2d::ObstacleLayer::addStaticObservation ( costmap_2d::Observation & obs, bool marking, bool clearing )

Can you tell me what's the role of this function ? is it to add a new obstacle to the costmap's obstacle layer ? and how and when can I use it ?

Waiting for your help.

This function primarily exists for testing purposes. For non-testing purposes, I would use the standard subscribers to add observations to your costmap.
