    Copy a binaryOccupancyMap object. Once copied, the original object can be modified without affecting the copied map.

    Create an occupancy map with zeros for an empty map.

    p = zeros(10);
    map = binaryOccupancyMap(p);

    Copy the occupancy map. Modify the original map. The copied map is not modified. Plot the two maps side by side.

    mapCopy = copy(map);
    title('Original map')
    title('Copied map')

    Figure contains 2 axes objects. Axes object 1 with title Original map, xlabel X [meters], ylabel Y [meters] contains an object of type image. Axes object 2 with title Copied map, xlabel X [meters], ylabel Y [meters] contains an object of type image.
