create_calib_data — Create a HALCON calibration data model.
create_calib_data creates a generic calibration
data model that stores
the description of a camera calibration setup,
settings for the calibration process,
the calibration data, and
the results of the camera calibration or the hand-eye calibration.
In the parameter
CalibSetup, you specify the calibration setup type.
Currently, five types are supported. A model of the type
'calibration_object' is used to calibrate the internal camera
parameters and the camera poses of one or more cameras based on the metric
information extracted from observations of calibration objects.
A model of type 'hand_eye_moving_cam', 'hand_eye_stationary_cam', 'hand_eye_scara_moving_cam', or 'hand_eye_scara_stationary_cam' is used to perform a hand-eye calibration based on observations of a calibration object and corresponding poses of a robot tool in the robot base coordinate system. The latter four model types on the one hand distinguish whether the camera or the calibration object is moved by the robot and on the other hand distinguish whether an articulated robot or a SCARA robot is calibrated. The arm of an articulated robot has three rotary joints typically covering 6 degrees of freedom (3 translations and 3 rotations). SCARA robots have two parallel rotary joints and one parallel prismatic joint covering only 4 degrees of freedom (3 translations and 1 rotation). Loosely speaking, an articulated robot is able to tilt its end effector while a SCARA robot is not.
NumCameras specifies the number of cameras that are
calibrated simultaneously in the setup.
specifies the number of calibration objects
observed by the cameras. Please note that for camera calibrations
with line scan cameras only a single calibration object is allowed
NumCalibObjects=1). For hand-eye calibrations, only two
setups are currently supported: either one area scan projective
camera and one calibration object (
NumCalibObjects=1) or a general sensor with no calibration
CalibDataID returns a handle of the new calibration data
model. You pass this handle to other operators to collect
the description of the camera setup, the calibration settings, and the
calibration data. For camera calibrations, you pass it to
calibrate_cameras, which performs the actual camera calibration
and stores the calibration results in the calibration data model.
For a detailed description of the preparation process, please refer to
the chapter reference Calibration.
For hand-eye calibrations, you pass it to
performs the actual hand-eye calibration and stores the calibration results
in the calibration data model. For a detailed description of the
preparation process, please refer to the operator
This operator returns a handle. Note that the state of an instance of this handle type may be changed by specific operators even though the handle is used as an input parameter by those operators.
