Under the course path planning basics, chapter 5 Artificial Potential fields, it’s asked to play around with the values of robot_radius and inflation_radius to see the changes in the obstacle representation. It’s also asked to change both the values simultaneously.
I changed only the value of robot_radius, while keeping the inflation_radius as zero, there was NO change in the output, no matter the value of the radius.
Keeping the value of robot_radius constant and altering the inflation_radius resulted in drastic changes in the output.
Can you tell me then why was it asked to change both the values of robot_radius and inflation_radius simultaneously when changes only occur with changes in inflation_radius.
