Hi i have a pioneer 3dx working perfectly with gmapping and navigation but i need to add an arbitrary obstacle in the middle of the "map" so the pioneer avoids it. how can i add this obstacle so that the robot considers it when it navigates. Can i add a new obstacle to the obstacle topic or add it to the costmap? I would really appreciate some help

@David Lu, Can you give me some tips? I need to do the same. Can I solve this problem by creating a new layer? like this tutorials teach us. I am a novice and using Hydro, many thanks!
