inflate

Description

example

inflate(map3D,radius) inflates each occupied position of the specified in the input occupancyMap3D object by the radius specified in meters. radius is rounded up to the nearest equivalent cell based on the resolution of the map. This inflation increases the size of the occupied locations in the map.

Import a 3-D occupancy map.

map3D = importOccupancyMap3D("citymap.ot")
map3D = 
  occupancyMap3D with properties:

    ProbabilitySaturation: [1.0000e-03 0.9990]
               Resolution: 1
        OccupiedThreshold: 0.6500
            FreeThreshold: 0.2000

Inflate the occupied areas by a radius of 1 m. Display the map.

inflate(map3D,1)
show(map3D)

Find the intersection points of rays and occupied map cells.

numRays = 10;
angles = linspace(-pi/2,pi/2,numRays);
directions = [cos(angles); sin(angles); zeros(1,numRays)]';
sensorPose = [55 40 1 1 0 0 0];
maxrange = 15;
[intersectionPts,isOccupied] = rayIntersection(map3D,sensorPose,directions,maxrange)
intersectionPts = 10×3
