Integrated Development Environment for Machine Vision

HALCON provides an Integrated Development Environment (IDE) for machine vision: HDevelop is a highly interactive environment that enables you to build image processing solutions fast and efficiently – even while acquiring images from a capture device. As soon as you are satisfied with your machine vision program code, HDevelop exports it as C++, C, C#, or Visual Basic source code, which can be easily integrated into your application.
The full functionality of HDevelop (incl. all windows listed above) can be used on all operating systems which are supported by HALCON (see here). Thanks to the long experience HALCON is based on, HDevelop is tailored to the needs of machine vision applications with a GUI that is optimized for usability.
Alternatively, you can use HDevEngine - a library that lets you directly load and execute HDevelop programs and procedures without the necessity of running through a compiling and linking process.
Moreover, HDevelop contains assistants for common subtasks, such as image acquisition, camera calibration, or matching. Use the graphical user interface of those HDevelop Assistants to interactively set up and configure your solution and insert the corresponding code sequence on demand into your HDevelop program.
Apart from English, the HDevelop GUI is available in these languages:
