ROSCon 2017: easy_handeye: hand-eye calibration for humans -- Marco Esposito and Salvatore Virga (Technical University of Munich)

Looking foward to ROSCon 2018 we're highlighting presentations from last year.

Marco introduces the easy_hadeye package using motivation from his groups research using multiple systems.



Hand-Eye calibration is a "necessary evil" for enabling the interaction between a robot and its environment, including humans. Determining the precise geometric transformation between the coordinate systems of the robot and the utilized camera(s) is as annoying as it is important in order to avoid errors of multiple centimeters already at a meter distance. easy handeye is a new ROS package that aims at facilitating the computation and management of Hand-Eye calibration, while keeping the library completely generic with respect to hardware and encouraging the user to employ best practices known to date.
