We are excited to introduce a significant improvement to part of our back-end software, the Elevation Map. With our new Near Field Mapping technology, you should expect to see significant performance improvement in subsystems that rely on the Elevation Map, most notably, the Perceptive Walk and Stair Climbing gaits. You should see improved performance on grated/metal stairs, grated floors, pallets, and more. We encourage you to report any changes in performance at your site. In the event that you’d like to revert back to the current Elevation Map, simply add the following Feature Toggle to your .ros/config.yaml file on LPC.
