I am having problems with Nav2 in my mobile robot and hope someone can help me.

I set up my robot for simulation, created the map with the SLAM toolbox and configured Nav2 for navigation, however if I put an additional obstacle in the simulation the global costmap doesnt updates as it is supposed to do (see the following image).

obstacle error

I changed the scan topic for local and global costmaps in the params file to the topic my robot is publishing, but doesnt work. I found a post in ROS Discourse about a Nav2 problem with Fast-DDS ([Nav2] Issues with Humble Binaries due to Fast-DDS RMW Regression) so I switched to Cyclone-DDS as suggested following the instructions found in the ROS Humble documentation (Eclipse Cyclone DDS) but it is still not working.

This is my params file in case you need it:

I think I found the issue, in the topic param for global_costmap I had merged_laser/scan, I changed it to /merged_laser/scan and is working now. :)
