What is the relationship between costmap footprint and URDF model collision definition. Other values like joint velocity and effort limits in URDF and limits in move-base config file how is the relationship to be view. Is the URDF the limiting factor or does move base over ride? I found some information here: I am guessing that URDF specifications limits and footprint take precidence and anything set in move-base should be aliened with those setting.

Someone might correct me, but my best guess for default move_base is: They are totally independent.

In other words: Both must be setup correctly, matching one each other. In particular move_base doesn't assume the robot configuration to change, i.e. the footprint is constant.

There are some move_base planner implementations that actually take the 3D environment and robot configuration into account.
