distance_field::PropagationDistanceField Class Reference

A DistanceField implementation that uses a vector propagation method. Distances propagate outward from occupied cells, or inwards from unoccupied cells if negative distances are to be computed, which is optional. Outward and inward propagation only occur to a desired maximum distance - cells that are more than this maximum distance from the nearest cell will have maximum distance measurements. More...

A DistanceField implementation that uses a vector propagation method. Distances propagate outward from occupied cells, or inwards from unoccupied cells if negative distances are to be computed, which is optional. Outward and inward propagation only occur to a desired maximum distance - cells that are more than this maximum distance from the nearest cell will have maximum distance measurements.

This class uses a VoxelGrid to hold all data. One important decision that must be made on construction is whether or not to create a signed version of the distance field. If the distance field is unsigned, it means that the minumum obstacle distance is 0, a value that will be assigned to all obstacle cells. Gradient queries for obstacle cells will not give useful information, as the gradient at an obstacle cell will point to the cell itself. If this behavior is acceptable, then the performance of this mode will be more efficient, as no propagation will occur for obstacle cells. The other option is to calculate signed distances. In this case, negative distances up to the maximum distance are calculated for obstacle volumes. This distance encodes the distance of an obstacle cell to the nearest unoccupied obstacle voxel. Furthmore, gradients pointing out of the volume will be produced. Depending on the data, calculating this data can significantly impact the time it takes to add and remove obstacle cells.

Definition at line 310 of file propagation_distance_field.cpp.

void distance_field::PropagationDistanceField::removePointsFromField | ( | const EigenSTL::vector_Vector3d & | points | ) | ` [virtual]` |

Remove a set of obstacle points from the distance field, updating distance values accordingly.

This function is relatively less efficient than adding points to the field in terms of positive distances - adding a given number of points will be less comptationally expensive than removing the same number of points. This is due to the nature of the propagation algorithm - when removing sets of cells, we must search outward from the freed cells and then propagate inward. Negative distances can be propagated more efficiently, as propagation can occur outward from newly freed cells without requiring a search step. If the set of occupied points that remain after removal is small it may be more efficient to call reset and then to add the remaining points rather than removing a set of points.

**Parameters:**-
[in] points The set of obstacle points that will be set as free

Implements distance_field::DistanceField.

void distance_field::PropagationDistanceField::updatePointsInField | ( | const EigenSTL::vector_Vector3d & | old_points, |

const EigenSTL::vector_Vector3d & | new_points |
||

) | ` [virtual]` |

This function will remove any obstacle points that are in the old point set but not the new point set, and add any obstacle points that are in the new block set but not the old block set. Any points that are in both sets are left unchanged. For more information see DistanceField::updatePointsInField.

The implementation of this function finds the set of points that are in the old_points and not the new_points, and the in the new_points and not the old_points using std::set_difference. It then calls a removal function on the former set, and an addition function on the latter set.

If there is no overlap between the old_points and the new_points it is more efficient to first call removePointsFromField on the old_points and then addPointsToField on the new points - this does not require computing set differences.

**Parameters:**-
[in] old_points The set of points that all should be obstacle cells in the distance field [in] new_points The set of points, all of which are intended to be obstacle points in the distance field

) | const` [virtual]` |

Converts from a world location to a set of integer indices. Should return false if the world location is not valid in the distance field, and should populate the index values in either case.

bool distance_field::PropagationDistanceField::writeToStream | ( | std::ostream & | stream | ) | const` [virtual]` |

Writes the contents of the distance field to the supplied stream.

This function writes the resolution, size, and origin parameters to the file in ASCII. It then writes the occupancy data only in bit form (with values or 1 representing occupancy, and 0 representing empty space). It further runs Zlib compression on the binary data before actually writing to disk. The max_distance and propagate_negative_distances values are not written to file, and the distances themselves will need to be recreated on load.

**Parameters:**-
[out] stream The stream to which to write the distance field contents.

**Returns:**- True
