i am new to ROS and coding, i am trying to write a costmap layer which subscribes to topic "nav_msgs/path"(from bag file which assumed as path of other robot) and mark those array of poses as obstacles and update to master layer so that robot avoids that path and replans the path. i have followed this tutorial as the example, here i facing the problem in updating the correct boundary values in update bound function and mark those values in master layer. the obstacles are marked at some distance before the robot and when the robot is moving, (its showing in RViz) obstacle path is also moving along with the robot even though i mention the boundary values using mark_x and mark_y in functionCB and updating boundary values accordingly by calling set bounds function in it. please dont mind i dont know how to post the questions in , please kindly help me in solving problem. thanks and regards
