I've defined a base_footprint tf frame: map --> odom --> base_footprint --> base_link -->> camera frames

A footprint is defined in costmap_common_params.yaml

My .urdf.xacro file is read and parsed correctly during rviz initialization. (Is this where a base_footprint outline should be defined?)

How do I display the base_footprint outline in rviz?

Robot footprint It shows the footprint of the robot; in our case, the robot has a footprint, which has a width of 0.4 meters and a height of 0.4 meters. Remember that this parameter is configured in the costmap_common_params file. This dimension is important because the navigation stack will move the robot in a safe mode using the values configured before. • Topic: local_costmap/robot_footprint • Type: geometry_msgs/Polygon image:image
