On-the-field calibration of an array of sensors

We address the problem of the calibration of an array of sensors by investigating theoretically and experimentally the case of 2 three-axis sensors. Our focus is on magnetometers that can be used in a low-cost inertial navigation system. Usual errors (misalignments, non-orthogonality, scale factors, biases) are accounted for. The proposed calibration method requires no specific calibration hardware. Instead, we solely use the fact that, if the sensor is properly calibrated, the norm of the sensed field must remain constant irrespective of the sensors orientation. Several strategies of calibration for an array of sensors are described along with the impact of (unavoidable) field disturbances. Experiments conducted with a couple of magneto-resistive magnetometers and data fusion results illustrate the relevance of the approach.
