Hand-eye calibration with MVTec HALCON (stationary 2D camera)

In this tutorial, we use HDevelop to perform a hand-eye calibration. This hand-eye calibration is necessary to pick and place objects, which are observed by a stationary 2D camera, with a robot.

There are multiple ways to perform a hand-eye calibration with HALCON - in this video, we manually approach a calibration plate with the gripper of our robot and use these poses to get a correspondence of the camera coordinate system and the robot coordinate system.
